Description

I did this awhile ago to practice aiding on overhanging terrain before heading up to the north side of the glass. I thought I'd add it because there really isn't any good place to practice nailing in north Georgia and this is relatively close to Atlanta. I could not get it clean, but I suck so go figure.. Also I listed Crowder as the FA because the only info on these routes are on his website. I'm not sure about this.. The DCA doesn't have any info for them.

The quality of the rock seems to be weaker than the granite on the main face, don't miss the pins when hammering unless you like rock dust in your eye.

The start of the route has a nice .75 Camelot placement for a directional, which is useful if you're soloing and using a tree as your anchor. After clipping the .75, follow the thin crack up to the left by placing a couple of small aliens/nuts. I had to place a #1 BD nut because top stepping is tricky here. Once you get to the base of the roof, traverse right and bring out the hammer. This is the crux and involves an inconsistent knifeblade sized crack. Go around the small corner and the route connects with "Hobbits Hammer." place a blue alien here. Exit the cave by trickey nuts and/or arrows. Get vertical again and arrive at the ledge.

Rappel using the tree.

Location

The left most crack within the cave, can't miss it.
