Seth Tart eyeballing the 2nd crux Theatre of Pain ...


This is an amazing stretch of North Carolina overhang with multiple cruxes and sustained climbing. The line starts pretty much in the center of the wall. Start on jugs that lead to a technical buldge at the second bolt. The climbing is not harder than 5.10 between the second and third bolt, however it would not be wise to fall between them.

SOFT. Probably no move harder than v4 or v5.

The line climbs very differently according to staying direct on the bolt line or moving off of it slightly to a few jugs. Grade aside it's a wonderful line.
