This climb holds nothing back with tricky moves and painful crimps off the deck. Fear not, however, because the climb is done after the second bolt.


Second route from the left in Slate Nation. To the left is some distance followed by 'Smooth as Slate' (5.8). To the right is a series of challenging climbs; the first of which is 'Redneck Riviera (5.13a).


5 bolts to ring anchors. A stick clip is handy for safely pulling the crux.
