The Central Wall really includes all routes from the big gully near the Amphitheater (to climbers left) and the Circus Wall (to climbers right) on the Sentinel Buttress. Most of the documented climbing, however, lies closer to the Sentinel Buttress than anything else.
Once you've taken the left onto the powerline road, walk for a few minutes until you see a park sign on the right pointing to the Sentinel Buttress trail. Turn right and head up the trail, following signs for the Sentinel Buttress. Once you get close to the wall, the trail splits and either heads left toward the Central Wall or right toward the Sentinel Buttress. Take the left and you'll meet the wall somewhere near Washboard and Hopscotch.

Head up the left leaning flake at the start. Either build a belay at a good stance above this (before the route diagonals left and up again) or be very mindful of rope drag. After the stance head up and left to the crux. Then bust right from a nice stance on a technical traverse, crux 2. Make for the overhanging corner and land the big tuna out right and belay on gear....[more] Browse More Classics in NC
