Prince of Darkness, 5.10c

3rd Pitch- 130’- 5.10a/ The 3rd and 5th pitches require more gear placements then the other four. I know I at least used a #1 C4 and a #2 C3 along with a nut or two in a decent seam in the middle of the bolted line on this pitch. I am not sure there are as many bolts as Handren describes in his book. I believe Supertopo is more accurate with about 13 bolts to a hanging belay. This is the third hardest lead of the route.
