Description

This climb gets progressively harder the higher you go up on it. Some say the route is 10a because it gets thin at the last bolt.

Location

At the far right of the cliff near a water source. It's the second route from the left on that wall.

Protection

5 bolts and Anchors

This is no longer the route furthest to the left. There's now a new 9+ to the left in the corner called Dancin with the Pope Jun 7, 2012

I really thought there were 3 moves that were at least 10b-c: a strong reachy move halfway up, followed by a long mantle, and finishing with a very thin section. Eh, I suppose I'm a wimp. Jul 27, 2013

The first bolt is high. We used a stick clip and would recommend it for other.

A good handful of small ledge type mantle moves (other beta works too) on this route, but you should be able to find decent feet all the way (not to smear-y).

Dancing with the Pope is just to the left of Homegrown. You'll see Dancing with the Pope is the one with the shrubbery about 15-20 ft up and Homegrown starts to the right of that on some jugs and a staircase looking formation. Jul 11, 2017

Best single pitch 5.9 in the Boone/Linville Area? Maybe Nov 1, 2017
Great pitch of climbing; exciting and thought provoking at the top. Get on it! Mar 31, 2018

A really nice route,
A true 10-
I used a full length sling sling around a horn and a separate metolius 2 mastercam to tame the runout between the first and second bolts. Oct 27, 2018
