Pitch Two- Route of Northern Aggression Sean Cobou...

Description 

This north facing crag has been known to ice-climbing locals for quite a while. There are prominent water flows that may interfere with climbing some of the classic features. But when the weather warms and the rains slow down, this is a premier Southern Blue Ridge destination. Recently 'rediscovered' this cliff has seen a spate of new development by the likes of Sean Cobourn, Stephen Scoff, and Nathan Brown.

Getting There 

At the Butter Gap intersection take the rising trail on your left. You will soon descend into a saddle. From here head along a faintly marked climbers trail on your left until you reach your destination.

A beautiful place. The hike is pleasant and straightforward. Lots of good routes here, and the prettiest dang view of Looking Glass I can imagine! The climbing reminded me of LG South side to some extent.
