This wall is the second-most western wall at Pilot. It is identified by a large chimney-which could easily be mistaken for a cave-right in the middle of the wall. The rock is good and there are a couple of fun, easy routes, so expect at least a few people on nice days.
From the Three Bears Gully, head west for 3-5 minutes. Look for a giant chimney with a "cave." There is a large overhang about 7-10 ft. high that hangs over the trail just before you reach The Beach.

Spin Drift is the name Lloyd Ramsey gave this route. It has a challenging start which requires some careful balancing. Once past the overhang start, move right then up. The crux is towards the top where a brief overhang exists with some good jugs. There's an easier variation when you get to the crux by going right, although you will be swinging left a bit if you fall here....[more] Browse More Classics in North Carolina

I was at Pilot today (3/9) and threw this rope down just around the corner from Hawaii Five-0, and have no clue what the name of this route is. Specifically to the right of the wet spot in the picture and then moving left out from underneath the roof. Is there anyone that knows and wants to help out and add it to the MP community?

jkerley, I have climbed that route several times. I think it is somewhere around a 5.8 grade. Kinda difficult start, but gets easier as you go up. Fun climb!
