Description

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.

Getting There

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).

There is a set of anchors w/ quicklinks directly below the heavily graffitied viewpoint you come to on the hike from the top to the Slab Area. It's an easy hike along the top of the rock from All I Wanted Was a Pepsi.

You can use this to setup an anchor and lower / rap down to the anchors for routes like Summer/Winter Solstice, Stranger than Friction, Frictionary, and probably a few more. Feb 13, 2017
