Comments: As of Sept 22, the hornet nest was still there. I quietly climbed past them and they didn't notice me. My partner didn't even notice the nest.

Comments: Book says "take enough #2's and #3's" for me that would have been 3 of each. Was wishing I had another #3 at the top.

Comments: The move around the second right facing corner seemed harder than 5.9+, because I couldn't get any traction with my feet! Got a .3 C4 in that corner and took some falls on that :) Fun climbing.

Comments: Really great route, great moves and pro! It's currently holding our #4 cam hostage. If anyone happens to retrieve it and would like a 6 pack of beer or just new friends please message me! Ultimately, we just hope someone gets it out. It's a cool looking line, hate to clutter it up.

Comments: Suggested edit for the directions. From the East, take I-66 West to exit 6, take a left on South 340/522, and shortly after a right on 55 West (Strasburg Road) until the town of Waterlick.

Otherwise you might end up getting off of 66 way earlier than necessary.

Also, Route 678 is actually "Fort Valley Road".

Comments: This is a great climb! Very thoughtful. I think the anchors have been replaced, they looked good. I took a fall right below the 6th bolt. I didn't get the move right, it's straightforward enough, but I guess I was having an off day. It was a 25-30 foot fall, with a bounce off the slab, and a big head knock on the flake below. Wear a helmet! Always! I'm not sure I'd be writing this comment if I wasn't wearing it.
