unknown 5.8

5.8- PG13, Trad, 70 ft,  Avg: 2 from 3 votes
FA: Patrick Weaver?
N Carolina > Cedar Rock > Cedar Rock - Main Wall
Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

This is a nice little slab route on the far east end of the main wall. An easy start leads directly into the crux, a pair of sharp friction moves with hand crimps and the risk of a short ground fall.

Location

Right of a large tree and just to the left of a pair of smaller trees growing out of the broken slab apron. From the single bolt you can continue on easy territory to the top and sling a tree, traverse right and walk down, or traverse left to the rap rings for the 5.5 and Blow and Drill.

Protection

Small cams and tri-cams, maybe a micro-nut.

Scouting the route from a tree stem. I tried slinging the tree to protect the crux, but the swing would not have been fun so I pulled it sharp.
