View from halfway up the slab area face
As the name implies, this is slab climbing. The routes here are good training for some of the more serious granite friction climbing areas in North Carolina.
At the bottom of the descent gully, turn left. The routes on the Slab Area wall begin here. Alternatively, rap in from the anchors for All I Wanted Was a Pepsi (you'll see these on the bald as you're coming down the descent trail before getting to the gully).

A really nice line for the (slightly sandbagged) grade, with a spicy alternate start.Move up and left on the slab to a gap in the overlap above. Though it's fairly easy climbing, this start is runout with no pro until you reach a bolt below the overlap maybe 30' up. Continue up on good friction following the bolted line to the top.Direct start (5.10a): Climb left of the regular start to join the route just below the first bolt.
