I'm trying to work through an ankle sprain I suffered during a fall a few weeks ago and was ready for something a little headier. The start is a little tough but fun. It is possible to start from the left or right and move back over to the bolt but that would make it too easy. I started directly under the bolt and studied the moves for several minutes before pulling it off. It just feels wrong having so many bolts. The second pitch can be a little sketchy due to the crumbling rock. There were flakes of rock the size of a dvd case ready to come loose. Pay close attention to where you step. I lead both pitches and lead all of Bombay Groove afterwards. That was all my ankle could take for the day.
Even though it was a bit warm, it was cloudy the entire time we climbed and made for a rather pleasant day. I had a little difficulty getting past the first bolt but finally figured out the moves. Getting to the next bolt is quite easy and fun. After that, the climbing gets steep and blank and becomes mildly difficult again. I found there to be some nice crystals and pinched my way past the next few bolts. I never had a feeling of desperation and just took my time locating the holds. The climbing from the fourth bolt up to the belay station was much easier, with more space between the bolts. After the sixth bolt and before reaching the belay, a bolt can be seen on Great Brown Way that is just a few feet to the right. I probably would have clipped it but I only brought six quickdraws with me, not realizing that I would use all of them before reaching the belay. The belay is a bit uncomfortable like most at Stone. The second pitch goes up and then to the right at the next bolt on Great Brown Way and finishes on that route. This is definitely one of the easier routes to follow at Stone Mountain. We rapped back down using a 70M rope.
