5 out of 5 stars As Good As Ever

Immediately after climbing Autumn Speaks, we rapped down to the tree ledge and I led all three pitches. I like the texture of the rock in this area, it really provides excellent grip. As we normally do, I went ahead and combined the top two pitches. It is a quick route. It only took about 30 minutes for us both to top-out at a normal pace for a couple of fat boys. This route should be on everyone's Stone Mtn to-do list.

5 out of 5 stars Starting To Get Hot

The heat is beginning to make the climbing a little more difficult, which I personally enjoy. I had also climbed the first pitch earlier in the week with another group but my second wasn't ready for it and bailed. I can't justify claiming an ascent from one pitch. Today, I lead the full route. We use a 70M rope, so I combined the second and third pitches into a single pitch.

5 out of 5 stars Can't Get Enough

One of my favorite routes. It is just hard enough to make it interesting and easy enough to climb with no difficulties. This should be on every Stone Mountain visitor's checklist. For those expecting lots of bolts due to the close proximity of those down low, make sure you are ready for the runout because the bolts become less and less.

5 out of 5 stars Nice, Easy Lead

Needed a little confidence booster and this is always a fairly easy route. I lead the full route and combined pitches two and three into a single pitch. We rapped back down on a single 70M.

5 out of 5 stars Great Moderate

I was able to lead the full route with a sprained ankle that I suffered during a fall on PF Flyers last weekend. It was quite painful but not that difficult. This is another one of my favorites. I turned the second and third pitches into a single pitch. There is a little runout up high but the friction is great.

I did have a little trouble getting my head in the game since I was unfortunate enough to witness someone fall to their death the previous day. I have a trip to Laurel Knob planned in a few weeks so I forced myself to climb today to keep from losing my nerve.
