fantastic that goes from easy run-out, to crimpy, to over hanging plates.

If the rock were a bit more solid this route would easily be 4 stars. All the same, it is a lot of fun! Cool crux move and overhanging plate hauling. When you see it, you will want to climb it!

Looks good and climbs better! The upper half is tons of fun on the overhanging plates. Really great route and a must do at the Gallery.

Impressively overhung for the grade. Some of the plates feel like time-bombs to me but then again, maybe not. Not as good or as hard as Breakfast Burrito.

Such a fun climb! Take a relaxing rest on the awesome ledge halfway up before getting to the jug haul. Cleaning it is tough, just like any overhanging climb.

One of the best 10's I've ever done! Tall, overhung, jughaul. Super fun

The Red River Gorge guidebook has this listed as a 5.10b (I would agree).
Crux is early into the route, near second bolt- a right hand undercling on a small flake to a left hand dead-point crimp. Holds get bigger as route progresses with a great resting point on a standing ledge half way up the route, before the overhanging section. Route continues up arete and becomes progressively overhanging with progressively bigger holds, to a great two hand jug at the chains for easy clipping.
