The Flackamite/Pirate wall Rock Climbing
"Rewritting approach details"
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.

Could probably be climbed in the rain due to the large roof....[more] Browse More Classics in North Carolina
