Description 

This is the first cluster of boulders as you head up the bouldering trail, off of the Shut-In Trail.

Getting There 

Follow Shut-In/Mountains To Sea trail for less than 5 minutes, past a small set of boulders just off the trail to the left (Unclimbed Boulders), to the next set of boulders to the left...follow the faint bouldering trail uphill 20 feet or so to the first overhanging boulder.

Sit start doubled on big undercling, towards the right side of the downhill overhanging face...find some feet, pull onto the undercling and pop up to a small jug and edge before heading up to the big sidepull. Work the sidepull up and around to top out. On the FA, there was an old bird's nest resting on the small jug that was removed, therefore the name Bird's Nest too....[more]   Browse More Classics in North Carolina
