Description

Unique climb for NC;good hand jams up an obvious crack. Climb a short corner to a ledge, then take the splitter crack to the top of the partially detached pillar

Location

Take the Cereal Wall approach but walk left once you hit the wall. Take a faint trail around some boulders and up hill about 50 feet. You will see a series of cracks, some very wide. This route is the right-most crack.

Location: 35.449783, -82.213475

Protection

2-4"; double 3's are good
Rappel slings at the top- bring a cordelet to set a TR

Awesome crack. Clearly too short... But it's bigger than a bouldering problem! Should be mentioned, the position and views of the lake are awesome. Epic photo op. 2 days ago

If you get lost, and find yourself at this climb, do it. But don't go seeking it out. Reminds me of the 20ft perfect hands (5.9) left and down hill of Invisible Airwaves. Nobody goes to LG Northface seeking it out.

On the other hand if you have a newb crew with you, lock this thing down with a TR rig and nobody will care. Mar 11, 2016

Great climb, although too short! I'm a newbie at jamming, but this was a good one to lead and then take some laps on to get the feel for hand/fist jams. Recommended Mar 10, 2016

By time you get into the rhythm of this climb, it's over. Fun climb though. Bring a couple #3s and #2s, it's all of 40ft tall. Nov 24, 2014

A splitter line that's for sure! If you're not use to crack climbing this will probably feel more difficult than 5.8. The crux is probably just getting established into the crack off the ledge. May 9, 2014

I really liked this climb, It has one or two offwidth sections in it and the start was a little difficult for me. Short but fun. Jan 21, 2013

Surprised this gets so few stars. It's short, but packs action the whole way with a great rest after some cupped-hands to fist action. Protects well with a couple of large (#3-4) cams. Feb 17, 2012
