A classic, aesthetic route. First 13 established in the Red River Gorge. Start the same as Mercy the Huff, but head left after this first bolt. Flow up the superb sequence to a balancy and crimpy crux on a blunt arete. Fight to the jug and keep it together on the black rock section.
Walk about 75 feet right of Hen-ry! to a beautiful multicolored wall. This route shares the start with Mercy the Huff.
10 Bolts plus anchors.

One of the best sport routes I've ever done...anywhere.

The direct start is not so bad but does add a bit to the difficulty. Big moves on decent holds but poor feet, then some good hold to a thin move or two getting into the original line. The upper crux still has the hardest moves on the route.

Important beta! I climbed the route last spring and this fall and have been attacked by hornets both times! Watch out!

what are the holds and the movement like on this rig? positive pockets and crimps? poor feet? big moves?
