The crux of this one comes about 15 feet up. The holds are large, but some interesting foot work is necessary.


The route is the second from the right when looking at the wall. There is an unnamed crack (5.5) just to the right.

An absolute must-do for the grade. Expect to get to the crag early or have to wait to get on this route.

The guidebook on the Carolina Climbers Coalition website rates this one as a 5.6 -- I would have to disagree, this one's more of a 5.7.

Was my first trad lead. easily protected with nothing larger than a .75.

This is a great route for those trying to move from gym climbing.
