4 out of 5 stars Always THE columns classic.

I always thought this was supposed to be 5.7? I soloed it in my tennies and down climbed it. Top roped in 14 seconds (with climbing shoes!)

4 out of 5 stars speed crack

this is my warm up run. I like to top rope it with an ascender and run laps until the sweat flows. I've gone up it in 14 seconds.
