Little Wilson is a wonderful small bolted climbing area that is right off the 221 freeway near Boone, NC. It is about 300 yards away from the dump. It has about 12 routes rating from 5.8 to 5.12 but is really easy climbing. The rock is wonderful with lots of features and overhanging walls.
Take the 221 freeway towards avery county. If you are coming from the Boone area, once you pass into Avery county stop at the 3rd parking area. Walk along the road until you get to get to the red rusted refrigerator. Turn left there and follow the trail. It is a 20 to 30 minute hike that involves alot of either downhill (To get there) or uphill (to get out) all in all, very worth it!

Steep jugs! No other way to describe this area classic. Probably the best route on the wall and deservedly so.Gain the ledge below the route by either starting out left (harder) or out right. Traverse the big ledge to get below the first bolt on the route. Start cranking on the jugs to get to the first bolt. Make a slightly reach move to get to the first section of steepness. Clip another bolt and the wall goes back to vertical. Get another bolt just below the big roof. Move up and left ...[more] Browse More Classics in NC
