Description 

Unlike the more forbidding Looking Glass areas, the South Side has something for everybody. Beginners can hop on easier climbs like Lichen or Not or Good Intentions; moderate leaders can hone their skills on great lines like Gemini Crack; and seasoned climbers can push themselves on harder routes like Dinkus Dog. Most of the routes at the South End are multi-pitch, but route-finding is straightforward and descent options include plentiful bolted rap stations.

Getting There 

From the road fork, continue up the gravel road a short distance to the Slickrock Falls trailhead, located where the road takes a hard left. Hike up the trail, following switchbacks, for about three-quarters of a mile, ending at the base of the wall in the Bloody Crack area.

Unfinished Concerto 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  NC : Looking Glass Rock : South Side
Unfinished Concerto provides the meat of the route in the first pitch - nice crack climbing to a very balancy mantel on to a ledge with bolts. From here, 2-3 pitches of easier climbing takes you to the Gemini Rappel Anchors. Double ropes are needed to rap to Sentry Box ledge and one single rope rappel (or down climb) gets you to the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
