View from halfway up the slab area face
As the name implies, this is slab climbing. The routes here are good training for some of the more serious granite friction climbing areas in North Carolina.
At the bottom of the descent gully, turn left. The routes on the Slab Area wall begin here. Alternatively, rap in from the anchors for All I Wanted Was a Pepsi (you'll see these on the bald as you're coming down the descent trail before getting to the gully).
Weather station 4.9 miles from here

Mikey's Mantle. Must do route on the slab wall

There is a set of anchors w/ quicklinks directly below the heavily graffitied viewpoint you come to on the hike from the top to the Slab Area. It's an easy hike along the top of the rock from All I Wanted Was a Pepsi.
You can use this to setup an anchor and lower / rap down to the anchors for routes like Summer/Winter Solstice, Stranger than Friction, Frictionary, and probably a few more.
