Mike starts 1st pitch Little Corner

    This is about as much fun as you can have at 5.6! Good protection, exposure and sustained climbing.

    Done in 3-4 pitches. No fixed hardware at belays which is typical for Shortoff.


    Turn left at the base of the descent gully and look for the first monster corner. This is "Little" Corner


    One of everything to #3 camalot

    Another view of the start of the route. It's bigger than it looks and pretty hard to get perspective from a pic like this.

    Climbed 7/3/2009. Great climb. Really sustained for the grade. I could argue the case that Little Corner is as good as Maginot line.

    I was very glad to get cell phone reception while I was climbing there in case something went wrong. It is extremely remote for NC. Did not see another climber all day, the day before the 4th of July (which was a Friday/Holiday).

    I think it works well as three pitches

    I was wondering if anyone has solo self belayed this route? If so, do you have any tips?

    Fun route. We climbed it in three pitches, which worked well. The first two were ~190 feet with good belays.

    I have soloed this.... its straightforward. Don't link any pitches is the only advice I can think off. Sustained ? - Don't think so. Fun - yes. My partner lead p3 in a downpour - that was interesting.

    P1 crack is 4 stars awesome fun climbing for the grade, great gear and fun jams. In my opinion, the other pitches above don't hold a candle to the quality of P1.
