 Commemorating the first Gulf War . . . Tackles the black wall just right of Under A Blood Red Sky. Begin at the base of a blocky white buttress: climb the bottom arête delicately past a bolt (crux) to a large ledge. From here, climb the black wall past two more bolts, and traverse up and right to reach thin cracks. At the top of these, move up and right to a ‘root and bolt belay’ as the original guide has it. Walk off.
