Comments: Basic Training (5.8) is right on the trail and is between RISING SUN WALL and RED WALL.

Comments: Not one you want to onsight due to the fall factor. This route needs an 'X' rating for those wanting to lead it. The gear is very subtle past the two obvious horizontals but after a few top rope mock-leads, to decipher the gear, this route becomes very doable.

Otherwise a rather short, enjoyable, straight-forward top-rope. Some of the rock is still questionable so be careful.

Comments: Route starts on the face. Climbs into the diagonal seam onto a ledge, climb the dihedral parallel to the tree.

Comments: I too feel that bailing left onto Desperately Seeking Juggage is off route. The namesake truly fits this route after the third bolt. The only beta I've found is to reach up and right onto a rigth hand sidepull that allows one to reach the ledge above the old anchor.

Comments: This route's original anchor was around the corner halfway up the wall right before the Energy Czar ledge (halfway up Instant Karma Direct). Because this anchor is in bad shape and in need of replacement, it is vetoed for the Energy Czar anchor for 'Butcher', and 'Karma' routes.

Keep your anchor short(two opposing quickdraws...with lockers for all you skeptics) and the rope drag won't be as bad.

When you rappel the rope doesn't move on the rock so it shouldn't tear up the rope when you are cl... more >>

Comments: At one point I would have been all for making it a mixed route but I now feel like it is nice having a sport route for those that don't climb trad. I would leave it as is... but that is just my opinion. One can choose to do it mixed but if the bolts are removed, then you are leaving out the sport climbers.

It is your route and your call but when one bolt was removed from the retro-bolted MAIN EVENT on WRESTLING WALL the masses were and are still upset even though it takes gear right next to th... more >>


Location: NC : Crowders Mountain : Main Climbing Areas : David's Castle Wall : Energy Czar (5.10d)
By: Eduardo Ramirez When: Aug 16, 2012

view comment >>
Comments: Energy Czar used to be a mostly traditional route with two fixed pins. In fact some of the best gear options are near the bolts that were added illegally without permission (retro-bolted). Still a great sport route. Some choose to climb this route mixed with a couple of pieces scattered in between bolts.

Comments: In the old Thomas Kelley Guide this route was shown as going all the way to the TOP! Add some spicy traditional climbing to this already pumpy sport route by linking the second pitch of this route. Either climb to the CATERPILLAR top out or to the GOLDEN SHOWER top out.

Comments: Unfortunatly, I don't have any old timers numbers to call and question. This website, old climbing guides, word of mouth are the only means for me to find out information on theses routes that have been long in need of updating. I was under the impression that it was still a TOP ROPE route. I am also under the impression that this website is a means to 'dig a little deeper'.

I have been updating these routes as I 'fire them off' and all along the way I feel like you've been quick to delete my c... more >>

Comments: I led this route on August 9th 2012 and re-dubbed it Fix-A-Flat. Well protected but super pumpy and technical.

Comments: After the 4th bolt there are two variations.

1) traverse right and up(right of the bolts) for the easier variation.

2) climb direct (left of the bolt line) to the anchors for the harder variation.


Location: NC : Crowders Mountain : Main Climbing Areas : Middle Finger Wall : The Balcony (5.5)

Comments: Locate the cave/hole/balcony in the center and halfway up Middle Finger Wall.

Start under this feature on a small slab pillar that leads to the balcony. Climb cliff left out of the balcony and continue climbing up just left of the balcony to arrive on an obivious ledge with a bolted anchor.

One long pitch makes for some fun climbing but make sure to use extended runners. The rock quality is not inspiring but the climbing is physically easy.

Comments: I would love to climb this route but the first(and only) rusted bolt that protects what seems to be the crux of the route needs to be replaced.

Any chance of this happening?


Location: NC : Crowders Mountain : Main Climbing Areas : David's Castle Wall : Fourplay (5.4)

Comments: Two variations to this route's start.

1)(5.4)- Climb the ledge system that leads to the small alcove and continue up physically easy climbing. The rock quality is less than desirable with decent protection for the trained eye.

2)Direct Start (5.7)- Hard moves right off the ground with great protection adds spice to a rather mellow route after this section. Smooth sailing once established past this low crux. Fight your mental demons as you learn to weight poor quality rock.

Comments: 07-01-2012 - Big Ben from Columbia, S.C. broke two holds off this route. One is not so obivious. The second one is the huge 'thank goodness' jug above the third bolt right after the undercling. I'm eager to see how much harder this section will be. The hold was bigger than a cantaloupe and you can see the orange/reddish spot below the fourth bolt.

Just a heads up!

Comments: Two different starts before the 5.6 slab.

1) The crack on the left is suppose to be 5.7 and looked harder than the direct on the right. I didn't have the topo on me when I choosing my start so I picked what looked easier to me. I finally climbed this alt. start and it felt harder than 5.7 but I also don't climb a lot of finger cracks. Protecting the start was probably the hardest part of this small feature.

2) The crack on the right(direct) is 5.8 CRACK climbing! Great hand jams through this s... more >>
