|I've got to go back and try this one again, it's been a long time. Never was able to finish it before running out of gas. And you only get one chance, since you take a huge pendulum into the air if you peel off the overhanging face. A fun route, probably my favorite at poor old Allenbrook.|

|Maybe the best route here, but reachy for avg folks. IMO, Afterburner and Country Fried Steak are better routes if you climb the grade because they don't rely on wingspan, but the exit on Rumors is fun with multiple options (through the V notch, up the pointy arete on the right). This place was my regular haunt for a few months right when I started climbing and was in school in ATL. Dirty routes, muddy base, all kinds of yahoos hanging around, but hey it's close to town and the 400 was new and almost traffic-free in the early 90s.|

|I went to Allenbrook for the first time yesterday, April 2015. I found that the bolt at the top of the route has been chopped so don't rely on it being there to build a TR anchor.|

|They're are two bolts at the top of this route inside the squeeze part.|

Currently two bolts at the anchor. I backed these up with static line from middle level around a rock and around a tree From the upper level. All the other bolts at the crag are chopped.
Not sure if this route is intended to be topped out. If so the area at the anchor was way too dusty for me to get beyond right where the bolts are.
The starting move isn't for everyone.
