It's only 5.7 if you think Muscle Shoals is 5.8....

Well, I'd be careful now rapping from the rhodo. I just noticed it is now infested by termites so it's a time bomb.

The tree is now just a stump. You have to top out and rap from a nice big pine to the left.

Dude I am an aspiring wide crack climber. And that pic just gave me hope. Us big guys need to stick together!

The hands are deep so jam and lunge, claw to the top through dirt and munge.

got to come back to get this one. ya 5.8 OW is hard. the top now sucks when even just a little moist. you can use 3's and 4's way back on most of this route, one or two 5's are nice in the middle.

I remember struggle bussing up this about 8 months ago. Not much different 8 months later. Fun as always, though.
