Description

Located on the east side of the mountain not too far off of the Looking Glass Trail. A couple of obscure walls seperated by a 4th class slab in between. The left side has a few good slabby routes up to 200' in height. It tends to drain water, so dry conditions are best.

Getting There

Park at the Looking Glass Trailhead (the hiking trail to top). Walk about 15 minutes to the second sharp left-hand switchback. Instead of continuing along the trail, hop over some large mossy logs. Follow a faint footpath up and around the first obvious boulder, then continue up a steep path (many boulders in the drainage to your right) to a plateau. From here continue up through a few boulders (cairns to follow). You will arrive at the tallest center section ~ 200' at the un-named 5.9 PG13 face.

Charles;
We had started on the crack and gone left to anchors on the 5.9 unknown (Central part of the main wall), but never worked right. Nathan may have or you may have been the first? I've been working on topos of the area for an upcoming guide to the entire Southern Pisgah region and likely have pics. Nice climbing up there! Apr 7, 2016
I led something today on the Left side, but I am not sure what. I followed the crack to the right of Clincher et. al., and then traversed right to the bottom of the upper corner below the bulge. It felt like 5.6 but very exposed despite decent pro. We top-roped straight up, and the upper section below the left-facing corner felt a bit higher grade.

I would like to see some pics from the first ascenders or others who know the routes better. Apr 3, 2016
