5 out of 5 stars The soft 10a comments

made by others are BS if you are short. There are some technical moves here that will get you thinking for sure. Great route that has something for everyone.

5 out of 5 stars very fun route

Two distinct easier 5.10 cruxes (might be 5.9 at a lot of other places). Well protected. Did this in mid July and was actually cold at the start! One of Shortoff's best climbs.

5 out of 5 stars straight and narrow

knocked this and construction job out in one day, what a wonderful one.

Did this again 10/2009. Climbs better as one long pitch of 5.5 past the small tree by about 40 feet. Then do one long pitch all the way to the top. Climbs wonderfully.

4 out of 5 stars A bit overrated

A few more delicate moves than nearby Construction Job, but not much harder. Good pro. Maybe the best 5.10 in Linville Gorge, but definitely NOT the best 5.10 in all of North Carolina. So far, my pick is Dinkus Dog at Looking Glass.
