Description 

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.

Starshine!

Starshine WI4  NC : Cashiers Area (Ice) : Whitesides (ice)
Starshine is THE ice route to do in North Carolina. There are longer gulley climbs in the Black Mountains to the north and sure some harder climbs to be found in Lynville Gorge or on the waterfalls on the Collusaja River, but none of these other waterfalls offers the beautiful position of Starshine.The climb is visible from Highway 64 and offers spectacular views of Laurel Knob and has awesome exposure. You can learn more about the climb by watching this video:...[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
