Seasonal Raptor Closure MORE INFO >>>


Starts from the bolted anchor on the top of the 3rd pitch of the Cave Route on the Lightening Ledge. Go straight up from the ledge following the right arching crack under the arete. Bust out onto the face when the holds disappear (crux) and head for the top of the crack.

When you turn the corner it's Welcome to Climbing in NC! Get a last piece in as you leave the face to enter about a 2 ft wide dirt filled notch that exits into a small gap in the Rhodo's. Hand holds consist of dirt, a moss covered large slopey rock and small diameter Rhodo's that may or may not be alive. The best hold may be a fistful of moss. Take it slow and careful and you should be fine, unless it's wet, then it'll be exciting. Belay off the best looking Rhodo.


After you top out there are two faint trails that tie back together and lead directly to the Table Rock summit.


Medium to small cams. You can place a bomber blue hex down low if you like that sort of thing.
