Description 

No you are not on one of Tuolumne Meadow's knob laced domes, but right in a pristine setting in Dixie Land. This is what you came for! The main wall is big and intimidating, but of the highest quality in the Southeast and maybe the country. The bold need not apply. For those not ready for this place, you will certainly be humbled. Most of the routes are 2-3 pitches long in mostly the hard 5.11 range with a few 5.10's thrown in there. True to the southern style, expect hair-raising runouts on moderate terrain and a need to complete difficult sequences above gear, no aiding through cruxes here. When you reach the top you will be rewarded with relief, a sense of accomplishment, and endless views of a beautiful South Carolina countryside.

The wall is warm and sunny all the way until the late afternoon. It is quite exposed, so expect some wind and bring some sun gear. Even on a Carolina-blue day, don't expect to see another soul.


Getting There 

Once you reach the base of the Watergroove Wall, turn left and head up the wet gulley. Continue traversing the base of the cliff past another wall. One of the first routes you come to on this wall is marked by the obvious offwidth corner feature of Peelin' Feelin'. It should take about 5-10 minutes from the where the trail meets the Watergroove Wall to reach these routes.

The obvious left-facing offwidth corner. Bring your #6 camalot.

Peelin' Feelin' 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b PG13  South Carolina : Table Rock : Main Face
One of the easier routes on the main face, but don't let it fool you. This one makes you work for it, wishing the next bolt was just a little closer. While the bolts are well spaced, it is by no means a dangerous route, despite what your butt may be telling you.Start at the obvious left-facing offwidth corner. This corner often runs, but can be aided. Power up the corner and onto the face above. You will reach a slabby ledge with a horizontal crack that runs across it and up the right eventually...[more]   Browse More Classics in South Carolina

Doc Bayne was a bad man. Glad to see this area on MtnProject. Like the description says, hard, sometimes airish climbing, on some of the best granite anywhere.
