I don't know the name of this route, but it definitely has been done before seeing as there are anchors for it at the top and it is a pretty obvious line. If you know name or FA, let me know. The first 10 feet are fairly overhanging and definitely the crux of the route. You can use a #0.5 Camalot to protect the overhanging moves. Once past the overhang, it gets exponentially easier. Cruise up the right-angling, shallow crack to the anchors. This is just right The Virus and left of New River Gorge Homesick Blues.

4 out of 5 stars Intimidating

This route looks a little harder than it actually is. Pulling the overhang was not to bad once I committed and got my feet up. Very fun sequence of moves!
