Description 

The routes at this wall can be easily top-roped. Rating range from 5.5 to 5.11. This is likely to busy on nice weekdays, and especially nice weekends due to the short approach and moderate climbs.

Papa Bear 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  North Carolina : Pilot Mountain : Three Bears
This route is pretty straightforward until you get to the roof. Then it's a hand jam and a long reach to a jug in the middle of two cracks. Some fancy footwork (a toe jam and a heel hook) will get you to the top. The guidebook rates this as a 5.9, which is way off.
