Description

This is the short upper right portion of the north face that makes for great summer time cragging. There are a few multipitch routes here, but the best quality routes are the shorter harder lines. This is a great area for someone looking for short crimpy face climbing.

Getting There

From TC:
The approach starts just to the right of the pit toilets. Go down the hill and the trail turns hard right. Follow this for 15 minutes to the log crossing. Shortly after the log crossing the trail crosses a creek and goes steeply up hill to the right. At the top of this trail puts you on the ridgeline trail. Follow ridgeline trail for a short distance and turn left and up the short hill at a faint trail. Immediately turn left again and curl around the front of a small rock face. Head down the first gully and then immediately down the next gully. At the base of the second, go skiers right and follow this for a few minutes to the base of the cliff.

I added some better approach beta with pictures of the complicated turns. This place deserves more traffic. It is the coolest summer temps in the lower Blue Ridge. Many ultra-classic vertical to slightly overhanging technical crimp fests. There are also some decent corner systems. The approach starts just to the right of the pit toilets. Go down the hill and the trail turns hard right. Follow this for 15 minutes to the log crossing. Shortly after the log crossing the trail crosses a creek and goes steeply up hill to the right.
