Almost anything from RPs to big cams, watch out for walkers! Use slings on the crux (a right traverse at the roof to the belay anchor).

Description:

Follow the prominate dihedral to a roof. Traverse right under the roof to a small ledge above Crazy Alice and finish on the Alice anchors. Supposedly the best 5.6 in the southern US, absolutely the best in the WWR of its grade.

Descent Options:

Rappel down. One 50mm rope will do the trick.

5 out of 5 stars fun

Kinda polished start through the first 1/3 of the climb, but then great rock. Very exposed feeling traverse to the anchors
