Climber's Guide Pilot Mountain State Park
Jeff Dillon - 2007
PURCHASE THIS ITEM
Local climber Jeff Dillon has just published a new guide to climbing at Pilot Mountain. Other books that had information on Pilot, such the Kelley guide, have been out of print for some time, and hand-printed guides at the park itself have been of questionable accuracy. Dillon's new pamphlet-sized guide now fills this void.
In addition to the usual required information on routes and ratings, the Climber's Guide to Pilot Mountain State Park includes a nice color map of the different sections of the climbing area, as well as notations where climbing is prohibited. There's a handy summary of the different sections and hiking times to get to them, and a good selection of photos of the routes. A brief description of bouldering at Pilot Mountain is also included.
The Climber's Guide Pilot Mountain State Park is free and available for download from the Carolina Climbers Coalition web site (click on the "Purchase This" link above). You can also pick up a copy at the park ranger station.
