Comments: The sit start to this is probably v2. Low Right start (about 10ft lower and R) is maybe v3/+. Fun warm up for the harder stuff on this bloc.

Comments: Project? V4? Nah, that's just crazy talk. A fun v0/1 warm-up. Also the only real down climb for the boulder.

Comments: If you sit start as low as possible its probably V1/2 at most. Fantastic line that should be on anyone's list who visits the area regardless of grade (inflation).

Comments: Sit start on two small incut slots and move left on slopers along the lip. Continue left until you can make a dead point to a left hand side pull and move up the fin to top out. V5ish perhaps

Comments: The route climbing area is pretty easy to find and the bouldering potential is almost limitless. The lines down here are fantastic and contain some of the best roof climbing in the state. There are plenty of moderate to hard lines established (with plenty of hard projects) which may be posted at some point. Pretty rad location.

Comments: This is literally a urine soaked turd of a climb covered in bird feces. The only reason anyone should have to be under this one is to start "on misty edge"

Comments: Would be classic if the start wasn't a bit dumpy. Fun line worth your time though

Comments: Rad, either jam or lay it back. Fantastic movement on this one. Not PG13 on the first pitch at least.


Location: North Carolina > Looking Glass Rock > Nose Area > The Nose (5.8)

Comments: Pitch 1: 5.4
Pitch 2: 5.7 (for all of one move)
Pitch 3: 5.7 (Again for only one move)

a fun way to cool down and end the day

Comments: Just go straight up there isn't a real runout off the ground and the pro is good.

Comments: Table rock still has room to grow so it may be fair game for a new route. But I would check with Mike Fischesser or Nate Brown, they seem to have the best or most extensive knowledge of that area. Or maybe even Lynn Willis could help you out there.

Cheers

Comments: The start crimps are pretty damn good, the next side pull is pretty shit so just dyno to the big hold and top out on the point
