Slabby climbing at its best in Alabama...vaguely reminiscent of NC slabbing. Good practice.
This route is fifty feet to the left of 'Pony Party,' between 'Collinsville Whore' and 'Pony Party,' follows a low slab and right-facing corner up to and through a notch, then negotiates a slab and left-facing corner to the top.
Small stuff...run this thing out. Sling some trees if you feel like it.

This would probably be a great route if it got more traffic and cleaned up. Runouts I normally don't mind, but runouts while tiptoeing through a minefield of pigshit-slick moss patches are another story. Still, it's a nice long line with adequate pro and a great view of the valley.
The route could use bolted anchors at the top. In the meantime, my partner and I left webbing with a rap ring and a quicklink on the tree at the top. A 60m rope is barely enough to get you to the ground with this rig.
Look for an ancient fixed pin about three-quarters of the way up.
