Nice fall day. Moved from main cedar page.

Description 

This north facing crag has been known to ice-climbing locals for quite a while. There are prominent water flows that may interfere with climbing some of the classic features. But when the weather warms and the rains slow down, this is a premier Southern Blue Ridge destination. Recently 'rediscovered' this cliff has seen a spate of new development by the likes of Sean Cobourn, Stephen Scoff, and Nathan Brown.

Getting There 

At the Butter Gap intersection take the rising trail on your left. You will soon descend into a saddle. From here head along a faintly marked climbers trail on your left until you reach your destination.

CONDITION REPORT 
The hike in to the north face just got a whole lot easier due to some much-needed trail re-working. This wall gets a lot of afternoon sun this time of year, so go get you some!
