A super direct line with hard and serious climbing from the off. Start at a left-leaning flared crack. Climb the flared crack to below the leaning wall and overhang. Make a very bold and hard sequence to reach the break under the right side of the overhang and move through it to the diagonal line just above (Vlad the Impailer). A powerful move up from the diagonal break gains better holds and a peg. Another very hard section gains a ledge and rest. Clip a peg up on the left, then head up rightwards (bold) to meet Bucket City. Follow the groove above to finish. © Rockfax
