Tucked away boulders near the dam at University Lake. Rock can be slick, but real solid. Spiders galore.

Getting There 

From Tar Hill Drive, take the trail beyond dumpsters and immediately take the left hand trail that follows the creek. Stay close to the bank and do not go near the house.

Skirt along the hills next to the creek for a quarter mile until it flattens out into a beautiful forested floodplain. Follow the trail for another quarter mile to reach Spiderqueen and Mad Dog.

From the rest of the boulders, follow the trail heading west along the creek for ~ 800m (0.5 mi). Cut down to the creek just before reaching the dam and look for the old train trestle.

This is a reverse of "Lolth would approve," going from the upper right to bottom left of the Spider slab. The moves use upper holds but not full-on pulling the lip as a jug. Requires technical footwork for the last move which would be the crux to get around the corner to the holds at the start of "Lolth would approve."...[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
