Cedar Rock South Side routes?

Anyone familiar with routes at Cedar Rock South Side?

Earlier this week climbed the Arch, and at the p2 rap anchors on the Arch, my buddy and I saw a bolt in a large water groove maybe 20ft above the anchors and climbed past that a 70m rope length to a tree island with a large very dead tree, then climbed up and right from there to a rap anchor and rode that back down.

We couldn't figure out what this route might be from the Southern Pisgah Rock and Ice guidebook, the topo doesn't show a route that links up to P2 of the Arch.

Curious if anyone knows the area well enough to share some beta.

Thanks!

I've got the guidebook for Cedar at the house -- I'll check it out this afternoon when I get home and send you a Topo and description if you think that might help.

Yeah, that would be really interesting. Maybe it has more information than the Pisgah book.

Thanks!

Here’s the Reardon topo! Looks like there’s not a route that goes above the Arch, but maybe Mike or someone else might be able to offer some more information. Wish I could be more help!

Thanks, Caleb!

Very similar topo to the one in the Pisgah book, and same blank spot where we were climbing. I guess it may be a forgotten router or a newer one.
