Description 

Slabby wall uphill from Finishing School Blues. Good rock, could use a bit more cleaning, but traffic should take care of that. Fun NC slab climbing!

Getting There 

Walk uphill and right of Finishing School Blues. Slabby, dumpy looking wall that yielded fun difficult routes that are taller than they first appear!

Middle route on the wall. Punch through tiny holds and balancy moves for two bolts. Move up 20 more feet on easy ground to another bolt. One last easier crux to a sizeable runout trending up and right. Cool gear placement in a water groove. Run it through bulges with good gear to a double bolt anchor at the top. Shares anchors with Egg Man....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC

This is directly above the Cave. Just scramble up left side of Cave buttress and voila.
