When you turn the corner it's Welcome to Climbing in NC! Get a last piece in as you leave the face to enter about a 2 ft wide dirt filled notch that exits into a small gap in the Rhodo's. Hand holds consist of dirt, a moss covered large slopey rock and small diameter Rhodo's that may or may not be alive. The best hold may be a fistful of moss. Take it slow and careful and you should be fine, unless it's wet, then it'll be exciting. Belay off the best looking Rhodo.
