Description 

If your looking for moderates, this is the place! Most of the routes here are a mix of face and watergroove climbing. Expect exciting climbing on very solid granite. While many of the routes are moderates, most have short or sometimes entire pitches that are runout. Most of the routes have few opportunities to place natural pro. If you don't see a bolt, often there is no pro. Although most of the routes on this face are of an exciting nature, there are a few classics of a safer variety. Check out Two for One, Primero, and Dry Line.

This side of Table Rock faces SE-ESE. The sun leaves this face early, so get a quick start to the day if you want warm climbs. The watergrooves often run for many days after a rain. This area is also more exposed to cold wind from the North Side. All climbs require a double rope rappel with 60m ropes to descend. Beware of hikers above you.

Getting There 

Follow the only trail to the base of the cliff as described in the main section. Once you reach the cliff base following the pink flagging you will be at the base of the Watergroove Wall at a route called Primero.

Dry Line 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a PG13  South Carolina : Table Rock : Watergroove Wall
A fun technical line with good protection for TR standards. This line is dry when most aren't as the name indicates.Start up the slab with big features. You have to make a moderate move to reach that first bolt. Continue moving up the bolted line with a distinct crux at the second bolt. After a few bolts you end up on a slab apron. You should notice a bolt just to the left of an often wet water groove. Make another couple of moves to get to the anchors just right of a big moss pad....[more]   Browse More Classics in South Carolina
