4 out of 5 stars Hidden amongst the sport routes...

Though Bubba City has largely become a haven for crowds of people seeking moderate sport routes, the area is still home to several striking and obvious natural lines. Cumberland Blues is certainly one of these. I hopped on without expectation, because I'm still not in top shape. Lo and behold... onsight. I'll take it.
