The Circus Wall offers excellent and exposed climbing on mostly horizontal edges and buckets... AND a broad range of difficulty. The four routes here are an excellent way to judge your progress at Moore's. If you can do Zoo View, then you're ready to try 5.8. Airshow... start thinking about 5.9's. If you send Break on Through then it's time to start looking at the other 5.10's at Moore's, and so on and so forth.
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. Go right toward Sentinel, and when you hit the wall walk up left, around the corner, and look up!

This route is probably as good as Zoo View on equally amazing rock. It is definitely a step up in difficulty as well. If you don't live in Winston-Salem or the Gunks, this might feel like 5.9......[more] Browse More Classics in NC
