Will on the crux of "Red Devil".


Boulder start (or jump for a jug) underneath the roof, climb huecos until you reach a sloper undercling, from here reach the well chalked jug and a fingerlock, Crux is pulling the lip and standing up to an undercling. Above you'll find varied moves on crimpers and jugs. The route uses the first 2 chain draws (the remaining chain draws up and left belong to the route "You don't know Jack").


In the middle of the roof left of Espresso (5.10c).


Chain Anchors, 2 chain draws (the remaining chain draws up and left belong to the route "You don't know Jack"). 3 hangers for draws.

The powerful moves getting stood up above the roof are the crux but a sequence of thin edges higher can be tough if pumped. An area favorite, even if it's a little on the short side.

Hah! I fell off those moves above the crux after the fourth clip and had to repeat the route the day after for a Redpoint. Agree that those moves are still plenty difficult.

Red Devil was the second sport route bolted at NJC.

There is some trickery available on this rig, just before starting the crux that can let you recover a bit if you milk it (you'll figure it out). Turning the lip itself wasn't that bad once you figure out the sequence.
