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!

Fun and interesting 5.9. This is will keep your attention at every bolt. A difficult or pumpy move will allow you to surmount each bolt.Start just right of Jigsaw on a face laced with jugs. Climb the face until you reach a ledge. Clip the second hidden bolt, sling long, and make a tough move to get onto the ledge. Get into the left facing dihedral, clip the bolt, and figure out the technical moves to get you under the overhanging section. Clip the final bolt and get steep!
