Description Suggest change

"Look a-yonder comin'
Comin' down that railroad track"

A thin friction test piece to be sure.  Not as much a lead, as a solo.

A testament to the head space and prowess of the early friction masters at Stone Mountain.  Remember kids, this was pre "sticky rubber" on climbing shoes.

First pitch has no gear and is 70 feet of fairly darn thin 5.10 friction.

Second pitch is the crux, with a single lead bolt.

Grade takes a dive on the third pitch and rest of the route which joins the upper pitches of the Pulpit.

Gorgeous rock.

Maybe best to TR this one!

"Well, I don't care if I do-die-do-die-do-die-do-die."

Location Suggest change

Located on the brown/orange streak just right of the Purring.

Left of Electric Boobs.

Protection Suggest change

Pretty much nada.
