Comments: If you have a 70 meter rope you can get down with one single rope rappel without any real 5th class downclimbing by swinging far left to a ledge system that offers an easy walk/scramble down. But make sure you knot those ends since it takes every bit of a 70m.

Comments: Nice pic that shows just how unusual this route is for Stone Mountain.

Comments: Gee Double do you mean the leftward extension? If you continue following the crack out left instead of heading up over the bulge to the first bolt the climb is called Last Dance 5.11c/X.

Comments: The direct start directly below the bolt goes at 10a or so and is a better line even though a good bit more runout.

Comments: While this was an OK route I have to confess I thought it was a little boring. Pretty much the same move over and over again for a hundred feet. I know a lot of people love it and I'm not knocking their feelings but I like a little more variety.

Comments: Super fun route. The last time I climbed it around 15 years ago I didn't enjoy it as much as I could have, since it started pouring rain on the 4th pitch, and we topped out with lightning snapping all around. A much more pleasant day today.

Comments: First pitch is stellar with one slightly exciting clip. Second pitch is 5.9 at the most not 10b.

Comments: Adding a surreal note to Mr. Singletarys lead a bagpiper started playing a funeral dirge in the field below as he was finishing the pitch.

Comments: Decent climbing but some loose friable rock on these still. I broke a small hold off Thumbs Up and the obvious clipping hold below the crux bolt flexes enough so that it's probably not going to last much longer.

Comments: I led this a couple of years ago on a cool day and thought it was really soft for 10d. Led it again yesterday on a hot and sunny day and thought 10d was reasonable.

Comments: That's actually the first bolt on Captain Crunch not Rice Krispies.

Comments: A key hold at the crux broke off a little while ago. I have not been up it since then but a friend of mine has and thinks it's probably a 5.11 move now.
