4 out of 5 stars nice climb

the 5.9 start (misty edge or something like that) is much better than the original.

5 out of 5 stars Amazing!

This is probably the best and most exciting multi at Table Rock. A bit sandbagged on the grade on all pitches, but the climbing made up for it. First pitch is heady, but ok if your tall. Second pitch is even more heady and exposed. Crux I was wondering how this could be a 5.8, but afterwards it was awesome. Glad I did it and didn't get scared by the sandbag in the N.C. book.

3 out of 5 stars watch out for the bird shit and loose block

FIrst 5.6 pitch is actually pretty strenuous and has some serious injury potential. Second 5.7 pitch is more fun and protects well. Crux pitch proved to be fairly difficult as there are a couple holds you can't see very well (or I'm blind!). I did end up lower off gear and reclimbing the The last move of the crux was a move to a great hold on a block...however, it was covered in purple bird shit (I guess they were eating the blueberries) and that block that is the jug after the crux is actually just sitting on a ledge. Be very careful how you pull on it as i was able to move it by pulling out and if it fell, it would likely cause serious damage.
