Comments: It's sort of difficult to set TRs on many of the routes. The walls are broken by terraces or gullies, in some cases. Several of these spots allow access to the top of the cliff. That said, these instances are somewhat hard to decipher if you don't have pretty good knowledge of the area. In general, you're gonna want to be able to lead to receive maximum bang for your buck at Steele. Nearby Palisades is very friendly for TRing.

Wickedest wall on the east coast!

Comments: Having climbed this variation for a third time Saturday and 7 1/2 years since the first time, I would offer that the new bolts do not detract from the in-your-face nature of this route. Their placement is ideal for the crux groove's moves. I very much agree that, ONE: Laurel Knob newcomers should start on something less dire and, TWO: This is one of the finest moderates anywhere. A very good line.

Comments: Updates....

As of May 2014, the SCC has had the rest of the road paved - almost to the parking lot. Virtually any vehicle should be able to access Steele, now.

The trail to Wolfe Wall has been completely updated with new steps installed by the Access Fund and the Jeep Conservation Team.
Click here.

The SCC has installed a luxurious, weatherproof composting outhouse near the parking lot. Please use this a... more >>

Comments: Good picture.

All three of these routes are fun and have quite a different flavor.

Comments: Some updates concerning Steele....

PROPERTY

~ The SCC property has long been paid for with several traildays since SCC inception. Typically, help is needed in the Spring and the Fall with good turn outs commonplace....usually food and drink and/or climbing follow. Check the Southeastern Climber's Coallition site for updates and the next trailday.

~ Most of the road has been paved and, while a bit rough at the moment, I have seen as many as four Priuses (Prii?) parked on the lot at once, withi... more >>

Comments: The route described above is the same as this one: unamed 5.7 arete

Perhaps they should be merged.

Comments: Doc Bayne was a bad man. Glad to see this area on MtnProject. Like the description says, hard, sometimes airish climbing, on some of the best granite anywhere.

Comments: One of the best routes in the SE. Double small wires protect to tippy top of the crack. Otherwise....just move.

Comments: Thanks Andrew....Replaced the image. Deborah is just right of the corner. Rustler is right of that and pulls the roof at a notch.

Comments: Nathan, the recommendation for TCUs/small cams is for loading up the flake before you pull into the groove. I remember some really good yellow and orange TCUs there.

Comments: Nathan, I cede to your opinion on the grade and will revise....I don't mean to downplay this route, at all....it's a heads up route for sure.

We didn't place anything bigger than a #2 in the P1 belay either time I've been on this, but I can see a #3 working. Likewise, larger pieces up high might work, but we didn't use them and I definitely don't remember seeing any before the first bolt.... My friend Paul thought he was going to fall out of the groove onto me and my brother the fi... more >>

Comments: I actually thought this was pretty good. Thoughtful face climbing over a shallow, broken crack for pro to the ledge. Stand up, clip the bolt, and now you're sport climbing on overhanging jugs through the headwall/bulge. Save one cam (0.75) for the top. Maybe 5.9+.

Comments: New anchors are for the 'middle way', 5.9/5.10- direct finish. Fire straight up an S shaped crack 15' left of the 5.8 flake finish. Small tricams and finger sized TCUs are good through the headwall. The new anchors take the sting out of a previously scratchy top out.

Comments: How about new pins instead of bolts?
I'll donate the pins.

Comments: Brannen....If you can lead solo the 5.8 on the right end of the Wolfe Wall, Graham's Crack at 5.7, or 4th class up the gully in the vicinity of Dreadlock et al, you'll be able to rig something nearby that will be more challenging and fun. Wolfe Wall is the best spot to get a burn, solo. Generally, anchors are challenging to access without a lead and much more so if you are unfamiliar with the intermittent nature of the cliffline.

Comments: Fixed pins are dubious, at best. Screamers and Offset Mastercams or TCUs might be advised.

Comments: As of 4/6, the first new bolt had been pulled out of the rock a good ways....I clipped it anyway and walked my #6. Yes, my #6.

Also, we got down in two 70M rappels. From the top to the top of the 2nd pitch. From the top of the 2nd pitch to the ground.
