Begins at rounded arete. Tricky moves through a small bulge lead to thin slabby climbing.


Six bolts.
Ring Anchors.

March 2011, bolts a bit rusty but seems to be solid. Dries quickly. Fun climb.

If you typically onsite 5.9 around the Cumberland prepared to be humbled on this one. Very unique climbing for the area, once you find the sequence it definitely goes at the grade. Once you lead this TR the wall to the right, it's fun too.

Trust your feet and blast off. The top seems a little contrived, anchors on the left side of the arete seemed more appropriate to me.

I'm going to have to come back for this one. The crimps between the 3rd to 4th bolt kicked my out-of-shape ass and had to bail. Fun climbing for sure though and would definitely recommend this route.
