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.

This is a high quality route that is probably as good as just about anything else at Cedar Rock. The first pitch starts on "Native Dance" before the two lines diverge ("Native Dance" climbs the lower angle left diagonaling crack).P-1Climb the short easy corner to the easy face. Gear protects the face that leads up to a line of 3 bolts ("Native Dance"). At the 3rd bolt move up and right past an optional shallow #0 TCU (out right) to gain the left facing crackless corner (see picture)@SEM...[more]   Browse More Classics in North Carolina
