BETA PHOTO: First few quickdraws at bottom of route.


Follow the face up a bolt line past a tree growing up in a crack. Surmount the ledge, and climb the right face of the arete up to the crux section, a blank seeming face where a couple 5.10 crimps and slopey feet will let you go for the awesome incut top out. There are brand new (courtesy of the Carolina Climber's Coalition) bolts and rings to lower from.


To the right side of the ledge 20' above the trail.


Sport, (8? bolts...bring adequate draws).

I believe the name of this route is actually "Smooth Sailing".

The tree growing next to the bolt line is a little annoying to avoid grabbing/touching, and can make a fall before getting on the ledge feel scarier. But the upper section more than makes up for it.
