Location: North Carolina > Stone Depot > North by Northwest variatio... (5.7)

Comments: Was back on North by Northwest in November. Be careful not to get sucked into the water grooves on the left of the second pitch. Looks like it is easirt terrain but you will end up about 15ft above the last bolt and about 15 ft to the right of it before you realize it. A fall here will suck. Stay under the bolts and you will be fine

Comments: I have climbed this route twice. First 2 pitches can be combined with a 70 but be ready for some drag. Third pitch is the crux but it is well bolted. There is actually 5 pitches not 3 but you can also combine the last 2. 5th pitch is super easy. Did it in the pouring rain with no problems. No fixed anchors on the last pitch so use the tree. Hardest part is the approach down to the base of the route. Be ready for some bush wacking.

Comments: I'm guessing they are at the belay and it is just rope coil not slack in the line.
