Description 

"Rewritting approach details"

Getting There 

Approach the same as for sitting bear. After passing the Devils hole trail and about halfway up the steep section of trail begin looking for a small, faint trail on the left that contours around to the left. Follow this for about 5 minutes until you gain the first routes on the wall which are unknown mixed routes done by Mike Fichesser. Continue around the wall and you will come up on Somalian pirate which is noted by a corner and bulge that ends at 50' with a 2 bolt anchor.

Rock Climbing Photo: Short but fun

Ptygmatic 5.11b/c 6c+ 23 VIII- 24 E4 6a  North Carolina : 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 North Carolina
