Rockfax Description
A varied outing up the steep corner cracks and then the wall to the right with one hard section. Climb the slim corner and pull out onto the right wall. Climb the right-hand line of bolts to a double bolt lower-off. Grade increase due to hold loss.
Silk Road, 7b, follows Open Road to where it moves right. Move left into The Jekyll and climb up this for three bolts. Traverse left to finish up the top section of China Crisis.
Silk Road, 7b+ 2.0 extends the line to the top of Dark Stranger. © Rockfax

βeta: Seems very tough for the grade. Felt like two 6a moves back to back, the second of which is very hard to see the holds. A bit harder than Highway 395 and a good bit harder than Achilles Heel. Possibly harder due to loss of footholds or just undergraded?
