With a short approach and a few steep lines, this area is worth the sub 5 minute approach for a quick fix.

Walk the paved path to the overlook. Just shy of the overlook, turn left and follow the path down and around into a gully to the bottom.

This is the righthand line of the 2 mixed routes, both ending at the same bolt anchor. A good line with a variety of climbing. It is quite steep at the top!Climb up dirty but easy rock about 10 feet to a ledge and 2 bolts above. Climb past these bolts to a ledge. Continue up past a small cam (sling long) to a bolt and a funky move around an overlap to more gear. Continue past 2 more bolts and a hand size cam to a bolted anchor at 100'....[more]   Browse More Classics in North Carolina
