It is illegal to be on the railroad tracks. Hot springs goers do it all the time so it shouldn't be an issue but keep a low profile and stay off the tracks. As Jeff notes in the guidebook, it's probably best to hike along the river instead of along the tracks.
DescriptionClimb the "tube" feature at the bottom of the route with unique but fun movement. Above, climb the steep face with some tricky and devious sequences on good limestone. A stout middle section is capped by a cruiser finish on big holds.
This is a great route and a must-do for the Neighborhood.
LocationThis is situated just left and uphill of Git'er Done in a small cave feature. Start by climbing the "tube" feature at the bottom.
Protection10 bolts.It shares an anchor with Git'er Done.
