Description:

This is a safe and fun sport climb about 20 ft. right and downhill from Fleet Feet. It is the only Stone Mountain climb where the climber can climb hard friction moves without the fear of falling 25+ ft. The climb is probably easier than its given grade.

4 out of 5 stars Sustained and well-protected

A great route with about 80' of sustained hard friction climbing. Nowhere near 12a though - probably a full grade lower. Took a slip moving past the 4th bolt, then hung a few times higher up to rest my screaming calves.
