First Ascent October 1976 by me and Tim Snipes. I led the first pitch, Snipes led the second, both on sight, pre-camming devices. We thought it was 5.8 at the time, which says a lot about the standards of that day.
I named it "Into the Country" after the John McPhee book that had just been published, but the guidebook got it slightly wrong.
Thanks for including it and these other fine routes in Tallulah.
