Description:

This is the super classic line at Rocktown. When you come into this area you will see this amazing problem following a line of big open-handed slopers going left out the lip of a roof and up the face. This is probably the most photographed problem in the Southeast.

4 out of 5 stars Le Orb

Amazing how temps and getting on the climb early in the day can make all the difference between hard and easy.
