The in/out route to access the camel area it is basically where the trail ends, at one time this was bolted, bolts were called “old” in the thomas kelly guide to NC. So they are 30 years old+ bring stuff to back them up. Route wanders up the easiest path on this face, two bolt anchor has no hangers but can be found at head level slightly hidden, cams .75, 1, & 3 can be placed above.  Use the largest pine tree to rap in(it is climbers left of the route) may want to leave a fixed line if the climb is wet or just for ease of access.


From TR parking take MST through the chimnies turn right to go down to camel and apricot buttress, keep right at any splits and head for the camel trail dead ends near the top of this climb.


Very old bolts and placements to back them up
