Description

A great mental challenge for the confident 5.8 leader. Requiring balance and skill, somewhat slopey moves take you up the face past 3 bolts.

Location

On the left end of the center wall of the Amphitheater. Second bolted line to the right of the Crackin' Up corner.

Protection

3 bolts, anchors

Pretty sketchy first clip at ~15' then the second clip is pretty high above that. Its a great route when dry. I did it wet and I was definitely having to be very slow and careful about weighting my feet on the wet slopers. Mar 7, 2017

Interesting route. Runout between the first and second bolt. A ground fall is definitely possible, and the spire sticking out at the base doesn't help. Jan 14, 2017

Good line. A little scary. It's the next step up from "Mild-mannered Secretary" next door, both in moves and head game. Get those good clip stances! Sep 15, 2015

This is now the SECOND bolted line from to the right of Crackin' Up. The first is a new 5.10 called Born to Crimp. Dec 12, 2014

Beautiful route, but I think the "R" rating in the guidebook on the carolinaclimbers.org may be warranted. There is a tenuous move before you can clip the second bolt that if you blew might result in a groundfall. Dec 4, 2012

This is an excellent route and is definitely one of my favorites at pilot. The second bolt is pretty high up there, but the clipping stance is great. Dec 27, 2011

This route is very polished from about 10 yrs of water trickling down it. They must have rediverted the trail, because the water doesn't seem to flow down the cliff face anymore. It's a really good slab climb, and one of my first outdoor climbs with the NCSU Rock Climbing class I took in college. Mar 25, 2010
