Take off from the far right of the Tree Ledge and climb the left facing corner. Four pitches to the top, but last one is a long easy runout without opportunity for pro.

4 out of 5 stars Awesome day for a climb

P1 is lots of fun with plenty of places for pro. It takes a full 60m rope to do this pitch. Lots of variation, a very fun route. P2 is a bit runout, but if you have some small nuts you can protect it somewhat before you reach the bolt. Failure before your first piece would suck. P3 has only 1 spot for pro, but levels off so much that it doesn't matter. The next time I would belay each climber over to the tree at the base of the route. I think it would help with rope length, and rope drag on this route. Both were a concern. Also, an ascent note wouldn't be complete without a comment about the exposure. It's awesome!!!!!

5 out of 5 stars Fun

I've led this one a few times but this time pitch 2 wasn't nearly as scary as I remember it being. I could definitely get hooked on Stone Mountain climbing all over again.

4 out of 5 stars Introduced New Climber to the Sport

I only climbed the route to introduce a new climbing partner to the sport. The climb is fun at times but a little boring due to its ease. It was very windy, which made the climb a little more fun when climbing the slab sections. I lead all pitches. This is an excellent climb for beginners or for warming up for tougher routes.
