Pinky Pillar Crowders Mountain State Park, North ...


The lone pillar next to Middle Finger Wall and in front of Two Pitch Wall. As small as a pinky when you compare it to Middle Finger.

Getting There 

From The Fortress, Gumbies Roof, and Middle Finger Backside scramble the gully sandwiched between Middle Finger and Two Pitch. When you are on top of the gully you'll see Pinky Pillar in front of Two Pitch.

Staying direct from the bottom to the top yields the hardest variation of this little ditty. Look for a rusty fixed pin halfway up and a bolt right before the chains. You can also escape left when you arrive at the bolt for an easier variation....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
