Description 

"Rewritting approach details"

Getting There 

The approach is from the sitting bear park area. Take the trail out of the lot uphill to a ridge and an intersecting trail. Turn right on the trail. You will pass a nice campspot and a sign marking the Devils Hole trail, continue past this and the trail will continue uphill. After the trail gets very steep and then flattens out you will pass an overlook on the left, continue on to the sitting bear formation.

Rock Climbing Photo: Short but fun

Ptygmatic 5.11b/c 6c+ 23 VIII- 24 E4 6a  NC : Linville Gorge : ... : The Flackamite/Pirate wall
Named after the impressive geological folds located under the large roof at the anchor. This route climbs the vertical funky face just right of the long dirty major crack system ("Red Lantern"?). Climb underclings and sidepulls past 3 bolts to an anchor under the big roof. A cryptic and bouldery route that is fun once you figure out the sequences. Could probably be climbed in the rain due to the large roof....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
