One of the best 5.9s in SE Tennessee, just be sure of your placement before pulling the little roof. A fall back onto the arête would be a broken angle if you are lucky. Carry a big cam to place in the horizontal just after you pull the roof them cruise to the top.

Great climb, great exposure, but not for the novice leader. Too much to bounce around on. First climbed this route in the late 80's and it is tope roped mostly, and lead seldom. If you are uncertain lead up Pleasing to the Touch and rig a tope rope then just enjoy!
