Wow Alex! This thing is a beast.....No second chances on the TR as the swing off leaves you hanging out about 10ft. I only managed about 20ft before repeatedly falling off and swinging into and getting tangled up in the overgrown tree branches nearby..... The section I was working is blank of any feet and looks like it requires desperate stab with left hand to a left facing sloper??

Hey Burt, climbs like this are best way to keep climbers pure, swim or sink, no 2nd chances on this one, make it or take the big swing, on my onsight attempt, got to a big hand hold, at the overhang, only to have the hold break, then the big swing into the tree,
