Second Sun 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  Tennessee : Sunset Park : Sunset South
Second Sun is a full-value 5.9 that gets a well-deserved three stars in the DCA. Occasionally strenuous stances for placing pro mean you better be solid at the grade to lead this route.A somewhat slabby start moves into a short, shallow dihedral, then to thin moves over a bulge. Continue up to a small roof; pull the roof move and follow another dihedral to a more juggy finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Tennessee
