This route is one of the crowns of Arkansas sport climbing. If you like em long, hard, with great rock, views, and movement, you have to check it out. It is 90 to 100 ft with 4 solid cruxes. For being a well bolted sport climb, it is one of the scariest leads I have ever done. Just be ready for a heinous mantle halfway up. ****

5 out of 5 stars Beautiful

This is a beautiful line. However, when we went the top section above the middle belay point was soaking wet, so we could only do the first section. I want to go back and finish it. Amazing little mono's and finger pockets, plus the tricky mantle.
