Finally did this climb yesterday. It is really relaxed and fun for the grade. Surprising amount of bolts for NC standards, with some good exposure near the top as you head around and over the roof.

The anchor is in an unintuitive spot. Would really like to see it relocated to the left, at the end of the corner. This line feels more natural on lead, but would make top-roping even more difficult than it already is from the current anchors. Sep 15, 2015

Hard to find the anchor. After a good 10 minutes of looking I just anchored to the 5.11 nearby, but then you are finishing in 5.11 territory instead of 5.7 and may not be doable for you or your party. Feb 1, 2016
Fun route with good exposure. Be careful of a few lose flakes around the 2nd and 3rd bolts. Had trouble finding the anchors when I reached the top, ended up rapping of the pine tree at the top. Walked up to the top and found the anchors on climbers right of the big block, interesting placement. I enjoyed the amount of bolts. Dec 15, 2016

Pretty fun climb, totally see where the route gets its name as you wrap your leg around the corner. Agree with Benandstuff, definitely more natural lead than a top-rope. I did both and felt more in control on the lead. Once around you've traversed across to the front face and upon the first ledge around the corner rock, some of the larger black rocks above are loose --use caution there, they're about 6 feet right of the bolt. From that same bolt, head straight up and the anchors are directly above. Jul 28, 2018
