Comments: Linked the first two pitches of Redneck Cartel to the last pitch of this. Quite the headwall when climbing narrowly between two waterfalls! Pure NC style; protection appears only when the tears might start to form.

Comments: Climbed this route in absolutely rotten conditions recently. It might be enjoyable during a normal winter but this year it's about 6-8 inches of swiss-cheese ice and snow over very actively flowing water. Might be wise to avoid.

Comments: Lots of fun, despite being completely choked with leaves. Got lost and wandered up to this area, saw this crack and climbed without knowledge of name or grade.

Comments: Sweet runout off of the ledge! Good, thought-provoking moves and gear placements in the maddeningly flaring crack, coupled with a pretty sandbagged second pitch, make a for a full package (or a thick, juicy humble burger). Not good for the new 5.8 leader.

Comments: Really great route, good pro, and easily linked into a single pitch. I felt this was a hair easier than First Return.

Comments: I couldn't help but be giddy after leading the first pitch. A lot of fun for the grade!
