Description

Crimpy climbing on perfect rock, with some big moves thrown in for good measure. One of the more popular sport routes in the high country. A few " extemely positive" holds.

Location

Middle Hawksbill.

Protection

Well bolted.

Definitely a fun and sustained effort up your typical Hawksbill crimps and a few good holds. Put this one on your NC sport climbing tick list!

Agreed. I revised the description. People do seem to like this one better than the others though, not sure why. Aug 10, 2012

Two very sharp, small crimps st the start (that might be avoided with a big reach), otherwise no too sharp. A good route, but best in the high country?? Not even the best on the wall IMO. Mar 19, 2012
