A great line that climbs the center of the Fourth Horseman formation with good movement through a bulge before finishing on incuts and edges. Start climbing on a honeycomb section of rock at the base of the climb that sits between the wall and a giant boulder behind you. Use big holds through the first few bolts before a mix of a side pull, crimps, and a lock off get you a horizontal seam before the start of the bulge. Clip the face of the bulge and pull over onto a fun finish of classic Smith Rock incuts on solid rock. The the more strenuous climbing takes place through the first half of the climb, but the finishing face keeps you on your toes until the anchor due to the pump for us mere mortals.
A great climb that felt more flowy and fun then the more hyped Headless Horseman

Mad Rock decided to give the Flash 2.0 an upgrade with the release of the Flash 2018 model. Having been a fan of the Flash 2.0 for years as a solid gym shoe, it was hard to believe that the shoe could get much better while staying at the same price point, but Mad Rock did it.
