Comments: The Park Service told us that no new bolts are allowed. Climbers received this information at 2 public discussions that took place during the summer of 2015 (in Knoxville, TN and again at Bandy Creek). This ban is in place during an ongoing reconsideration of the climbing management plan for the park; there's no timetable on the release of a new climbing management plan.

Comments: FYI: according to the Park Service, placing bolts isn't currently allowed in the BSF.

Comments: Felt hard to us compared to other V5s in the Park (True Grit, Street Fighter, etc), perhaps because of wet summer conditions. Very subtle and fun climbing.
