Description 

Tall more broken wall on the east end of the mountain. Sports some hard lines into the 5.13 range and a couple of good 5.11's. Many easy 2 pitch lines would be possible for those looking to pioneer some new terrain. The main area, which is a dihedral/buttress, faces southwest.

Getting There 

Descend frist gully/cleft and bushwhack a little ways east. The wall should be fairly obvious.

Deceivious 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  North Carolina : Cooks Wall : ... : Emla area
Deceivious is exactly that. The start is very awkward and deceptive but this is a high quality route and one of the best choices to get your first good pump of the day.At the second bolt, traverse right around the awkward triangle feature. It is easiest to move over top of it, although climbing under and around it is also possible. Thin face climbing leads to the crux. Traverse left through a couple powerful moves, then wade through a sea of jugs and a strong pump to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in North Carolina
