This route features some hard mixed climbing in an amazing setting. A semi-hanging belay over a waterfall is mandatory. The rock might still be mildly dirty at times on the easier sections, but will obviously improve with any sort of traffic (as opposed to none). Really cool Linville Gorge experience overall.

Start by carefully traversing out the boulder that overhangs the waterfall to a 2-bolt anchor. Climb the face via the obvious weakness past a bolt and gear to the huge roof. Climb out this past 4 more bolts to an easier slab section. Continue up the overhung final headwall to a 2-bolt anchor.
