Yes! There is actually ice in the Southeast. I know what you are thinking, but I was surprised when I made the trek out to Doughton park this January and found some really fun, perfectly top-ropeable lines within stones throw of the cars. While I'm not sure of the name of all of routes, I will do my best to generally summarize the ice climbing here. Offers short routes that are easy to top-rope. Good place for beginners!
Take highway 18 out of North Wilkesboro - bound for the Blue Ridge Parkway. Turn right at the blue ridge parkway. Follow for ~ 7 miles until you reach a parking area just before a gate.
