Patrick Hines on Howdy Dude.

Description 

The crux of this one comes about 15 feet up. The holds are large, but some interesting foot work is necessary.

Location 

The route is the second from the right when looking at the wall. There is an unnamed crack (5.5) just to the right.

Protection 

Top-rope

An absolute must-do for the grade. Expect to get to the crag early or have to wait to get on this route.

The guidebook on the Carolina Climbers Coalition website rates this one as a 5.6 -- I would have to disagree, this one's more of a 5.7.

This is a great route for those trying to move from gym climbing.
