Description 

Tall more broken wall on the east end of the mountain. Sports some hard lines into the 5.13 range and a couple of good 5.11's. Many easy 2 pitch lines would be possible for those looking to pioneer some new terrain. The main area, which is a dihedral/buttress, faces southwest.

Getting There 

Descend frist gully/cleft and bushwhack a little ways east. The wall should be fairly obvious.

Theater Of Pain 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ 30 E7 6c  NC : Cooks Wall : ... : Emla area
This is an amazing stretch of North Carolina overhang with multiple cruxes and sustained climbing. The line starts pretty much in the center of the wall. Start on jugs that lead to a technical buldge at the second bolt. The climbing is not harder than 5.10 between the second and third bolt, however it would not be wise to fall between them. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
