Stockings On The Mantle

5.11, Trad, 250 ft, 2 pitches,  Avg: 2.3 from 3 votes
FA: Sam Stevenson and Victor Moore 1987
N Carolina > Cedar Rock > Cedar Rock - Main Wall
Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

The first route to go through the headwall.
P1= Climb a flake to a ledge with a bolt. Face climb up to the corner above. Belay at top of corner from a single bolt backed up w/ gear.
P2= Climb the face above past 4 bolts to a ledge w/ an anchor. Crux. Rap from here.
Historical note since current NC guide is slightly incorrect: Charles Ivey did the first pitch and dubbed it Fat Chance. I honestly forget who put the bolts in on pitch two, but Shane Cobourn and I went up to finish it. There were bail biners on the bolts so we claimed the FA despite missing the FFA due to wetness issues. Sam and Victor nabbed the FFA around Christmas time, hence the name.

Location

50 feet+/- right of Sibling Revelry at a series of lower angle right facing flakes below an obvious corner.

Protection

some bolts, NC trad rack.
