Shady but still very hot in the summer. Great winter spot.

Kung Fu Grip V5 6C  NC : Rumbling Bald : ... : Cave Boulder
Classic! Start on a large sloping pinch to the right of the warm up problems on the shady side of the boulder. This problem stays pretty crisp even on hotter days at Rumbling Bald. Move up and match the square block, them move off the block to the crimp (crux). Make a big move left and top out on the ramp. This problem is very heel hook intensive....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
