5 out of 5 stars It's a workout!

Really fun route! Easily above a 5.10 if you pull the roof (without the chains, of course). Get ready to suck wind. about 20-25 ft of crack without rest. Watch for water on right side in winter.

This is a fun corner climb. The right side of the corner is usually wet unless it has not been raining for a while (but when does that happen in the smokies?)
