|Great route! Probably would give it more stars if it was longer.|

Thanks for the recommendations! We like the pitch too.
The name Punji Stick came the day we put it up as I stepped on a trimmed piece of that bamboo-like grass that grows at the base. Went through my foot like a nail. Go figure, despite being a former EMT and WFR, I had no first aid kit. Duh. You know, climbing shoes do a good job of stopping a bleeding foot wound.
