Description

A solid route with a bit of hollow rock on it, but nothing is going to break off if you are thoughtful about how you yard on things. The route gets a bit steep through the big flake section.

Start on the mossy boulder behind the tree and step up and left onto the face. Aim for the flakes. This route is almost all flakes. Collect the flakes.

At the biggest, baddest flake of them all, follow it right, stepping onto the face of the flake when convenient (partway through a lie-backey section). At the top walk left on what feels like a sidewalk to the bolted anchors below the roof.

Location

Left of Raven Arch and 5.9 For The Tough Guy, but right of Route of Northern Aggression. Look for the huge, downward pointing flake just begging for a big cam.

Protection

Small to big cams. Take a #4 for the big flake.

Rap on single rope.

Not a bad route. Interesting because it does not have a single bolt. It's quite easy; I would call it 5.8. Fun moves and a killer position under the roof at a bolted anchor. Sep 27, 2017
I have not climbed this since the completing the FA, but would be happy to downgrade to a 5.8 in the upcoming Southern Pisgah Rock and Ice guidebook, if that's the consensus. FA was myself and Jeff Heveron about 2011.

Side note: we put up this route up and Fish Bowl the day after a literal monsoon... they are some of the only climbable lines in the area a day after a heavy rain. Sep 28, 2017
