This route should be obligatory for people breaking into 5.11 sport climbing. I think the character of this route reflects early sport climbing routes. Expect widely spaced bolts, a weird crux, and an exciting top out.
This is the rightmost route at the Butcher's Branch crag.
6 bolts, could be supplemented with a few pieces of trad gear.

I found this to be a pretty fun climb. Lots of variety, a few mantles, stemming, optional jamming, lieback, crimps, jugs and slopers. Nothing especially strenuous for the grade, a bit heady if you're used to bolts 5-6 feet apart.
Not sure, but I think the name suggests difficulty for female climbers competent in the grade due to the long and sometimes strong moves. Don't let that deter anyone though!
