King of Kings 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  North Carolina : Linville Gorge : ... : Lower Hawksbill
A classic route that climbs a very unique sloping ramp. The first pitch (50') is pumpy the whole time and has great rock quality. There is a 2nd pitch that goes at 5.11- I believe, but it rarely gets done.IMHO, a glaring omission from Selected Climbs, which ironically features a full-page photo of this route but no description. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in North Carolina
