The exact route is unclear in the Carolina Climbers Coalition guidebook, but here is the route generally agreed upon:

Climb the center of the 30 ft. tall buttress that lies to the left of the base of the Big Arete area. Route appears to go over a little one-move roof and ends at the base of a pine tree in a crack (this tree makes it hard to top out on this climb).


Natural anchors. To set anchors, scramble up the chimney behind the buttress to set. On top, there is a tree and 2 large blocks about the size of a car motor. About 50 feet of webbing required. Try to avoid tying anchor to the poor little tree, use the blocks instead.
