Description

This incredibly steep and unique route is a contender for one of the best sport routes in the High Country, and is perhaps the longest steep sport route in NC. Climb The 8th Sin for 4 bolts, then head right when the bolt lines split. Power your way out the awesome and cruxy sloping ramp. Clip the draw/chain combo then engage a tricky rightward traverse. Mantle into a pod below a roof and don't blow it on the crimps below the anchors. Are we still in Carolina?

This is the area classic. Like Ben said, super steep and sustained. Potential for big airtime with the entire gorge at your back. So good! Jun 26, 2014

This route is super fun. You take BIG whips onto bomber bolts, mostly with fixed draws. It's very steep and climbs a proud line out the tallest part of the cave. More than just "good for NC", this would be a classic at any steep sport area. All this with the best backdrop of any climbing area in the High Country, the incredible NC Wall! Jun 9, 2010
