N Carolina > Looking Glass Rock > S Side


Climb the face past horizontals to a big ledge.


Close to where the approach trail meets the right side of the South Face, beneath the middle of Stage Ledge.

To get down, either rappel off the dead, fallen tree on Stage Ledge or do the "North Carolina 3rd class" down-climb off the climber's right side of the ledge.


light rack, hands to fingers, no anchors
