In addition - all 2020 raptor closures on the Nantahala Pisgah NF are LIFTED as of 6/29/2020
All routes are now open.
P1 (5.7) Climb right arching feature to hanging island of trees and shrubbery. Belay then move belay up and climbers right to spot below diehedral way up above you.
P2 (5.8). Climb to base of diehedral. I remember long slings being nice.
P3 (crux). This is why you climb this route! Climb diehedral to its top (5.9) which is actually the top of a pillar under a large horizontal roof. Keyhole a nut in the crack (yep, you heard right!) and commit to the roof. You would swear moves like these are in a gym but that nut dangling behind you reminds you otherwise. Awesome holds over the lip will get you to the top.
