Down and right of the Red Wall, this series of steep buttresses and faces is known variously as the Resurgance, Renaissance or Regurgitation Walls, depending on your point of view. Lots of routes went in during the late 80's early 90's using the unwritten 3 bolt rule ("The New Policy"). Up to three bolts was ok, more was a travesty. This was the "last hurrah" of new routing at Crowders and yielded a handful of quality lines..

Getting There 

Circle down past the right end of Red Wall. The first rock you should come to is New Policy Wall. A bit further right is Trundlasaurus Buttress. Below here is Plane Above Your Head, and below this is Rawlhide Wall.

This route was never meant to be but because Rocky and Bullwinkle (5.10) (which is harder if you stay right of the bolts) was bolted so close to Cro-Magnon Crack it became an easier way to climb this traditional route with an alternate finish.Therefore this squeeze job route was born. Enjoy, it is often a first lead for many first time sport leaders....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
