A view of The Riddler (5.12a) from the road, Joshu...


This sinister route starts with a short thin crack/lieback before gaining a flaring groove which ends at the base of a headwall. Clip a bolt, decipher the baffling crux and finish up a thin crack that widens at the top. Gear belay and easy walk-off down slabs to the climber's left.


Located on the far left side of the face and just left of TM's Terror behind a clump of yuccas.


Gear to 2.5", one bolt (3/8")
