Description

A sunny area with a short approach, Banana Belt has some good (but not great) moderates.

Getting There

Walk downstream about 100' from Pub Wall and cross the river in the midst of a grove of trees. This crossing used to be sketchy -- thanks to whoever recently fortified it.

Anyone know what the project to the right of hip pockets goes at? I tried it expecting an 11 and was very surprised. Bailed after the roof. Good fun. Dec 19, 2017

hey, ya'll. if anyone found a sad lost pair or 42.5 solutions with replaced straps I would be forever grateful for their return. It was either here or at pub wall last weekend. my number is 508 868 5671. I would be happy to pay for shipping and a rescue fee. Had them for almost 7 years and they're broke in just right. Finger crossed. Thanks Jan 20, 2018
