Description:

This is a fantastic route in Paradise Forks that starts in a waterfall cave (lots of stemming required), moves through a pumpy overhang, and onto a set of twin cracks. It's one of the best moderates in the area and is a very solid lead with lots of protection.

4 out of 5 stars Its good

Definitley kind of weird environment going on down there, half expect a teenage mutant ninja turtle to jump out at any time. Keep an eye out for jugs as the black rock can make them difficult to spot.
