BETA PHOTO: Dandy Line, Cedar Rock, NC. A well-protected long ...


Gorgeous, continuous crack feature that is often running with water. But when it isn't, it is one of the best 5.8 handcracks around.


Just right of Darkness on the Edge


Lots of mid sized cams. Nothing bigger than a #2 camalot. Rappel from rings at double bolt anchor.

Nice route although a bit green and mossy...but it wasn't running water. Seemed more of fingers and thin hands then hands for move. A must do in the area.

Excellent route! Similar to the first 2 pitches of the Womb in style (mostly finger crack), and easily as good as those pitches. If it's dry, do it. One 60 meter is just enough to get down.
