In addition - all 2020 raptor closures on the Nantahala Pisgah NF are LIFTED as of 6/29/2020
1)A "5.7" finger crack that felt much harder while having to plug protection into.
2)A "5.8" hand jamming crack that felt much easier due to the bomber hand jams while plugging in gear.
3)I'm pretty sure you can scramble up to this ledge from the Pink Flamingo chimney for an easy way to bypass the harder starts.
Once established on the ledge (removing the briars on this ledge took 20 minutes... not fun). Climb the chimney feature cliff left of the 'What Else Is There To Do?' slab.
This feature protects well with straight forward gear placements scattered up the chimney. You'll arrive a a ledge with a huge boulder and tree where you can set-up a Top Rope or continue on to the top of Davids Castle Wall.
I recommend topping out but you'll have to set up your natural anchor just below the top out. Don't use any of the DEAD TREES to anchor from.
