I tried to lead this and it was extremely dangerous. I almost fell multiple times from rock breaking when I was dangerously runout. I managed to downclimb without dying but I'd like to hear how this route is supposed to be done if someone has actually climbed it. In any case, I'd suggest giving it an X rating so people are prepared for what they are about to do.

Thanks, Danny - I updated the route. If you are saying it's scary, most everyone else would probably die of fright on the spot. ;)

Ironically, Porter up another route called "Chain Mail" in NC that is a 5-star classic...
