Description

A great slabby route with some classic edges and a gorgeous view of Lake Lure. Wanders slightly, to keep things interesting.
P1- Climb direct (harder) or stem up a tree to a point at which you can step over to the wall. Pass 5 or 6 bolts and some small TCU placements. Cut directly left near the last two bolts and end at a rap anchor. 90', 5.10a/b.
P2- Climb straight up past two bolts. This pitch starts off steep and eases considerably. End at a rap anchor. 75', 5.10.

Location

A few bolts supplemented by a handful of TCUS.

Protection

Dead center of the Lakeview Wall. Look for the dead tree near the right side of a 15' ledge. Rap once with two ropes (165') or twice with a single.
