Description Suggest change

This may be the most classic finger crack in the state of NC! It's got sustained moves all the way with an awesome fingertip crux. You may have to take a number for this one on a cold, clear Saturday.

Location Suggest change

The route is just left of the chasm next to Fruit Loops. If you hike left up the base of the cliff from Fruit Loops, you'll find yourself at the base.
To start, either scramble up to the large, trampled ledge beneath the finger crack or climb (5.10ish) up the aesthetic arete to the same ledge. You can belay from the ground or up on this ledge.
Rap from rings.

Protection Suggest change

The first 60' (the "business") don't take anything larger than a .75 camalot. A variety of small stuff and stoppers.
