Appalachian Alpinism T 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a R

Description

Southern end of Gold Coast Cliffs. Home to North Carolina's adventure climbing and bushwhacking! The approach is long. Getting back to the car can even be longer and more challenging. It is advisable to be able to climb with everything you bring with you. Climbing out is the best way currently to get back to the car.
