Cook's Fin represents the westernmost part of Cooks Wall. It received its name because looking at it from a distance, it gives the appearance of a rocky dorsal fin silhouetted along the back sloping west end of Cooks Wall. The routes are good and it's one of the largest concentrations of climbs at Cooks but the rock quality does suffer some being that the cliff breakdown begins here.

Climb past 6 shiny stainless bolts to a bolted anchor. Fun route with a high crux. The bolt is at your feet for the crux, so if 5.9 is your limit this would be an exciting but fun and pretty safe lead....[more]   Browse More Classics in North Carolina
