BETA PHOTO: Two climbers on the super, ultra, mega-classic Sta...
The greater Cashiers Valley has been referred to by southern climbers as "the Yosemite of the south." In addition to the area's 1000' walls found on Laurel Knob, it also offers some of the longer and more technical ice climbs found in North Carolina.
The North and east Side of White sides, the waterfalls along the Callusaja river below highlands, and numerous other choose your own adventure and go looking for possible first ascents that likely remain in obscure corners or private or public land.
Majors areas with ice:
- North Face of Whitesides
- Collusaja River southwest of Highlands
and there may be other remote waterfalls the beta for which are lost to time or have been secreted away by first ascentionists.
