Comments: We made the mistake of bringin a 2nd rope up to rap in just one go from the very top. The rope drag was so intense we almost couldnt pull th rope after rappeling. I would advise rappeling in stages just to avoid this.

Comments: The campsites near the prophecy wall were not too trashed a few days ago. We bagged out a bunch of cigarette butts and broken glass today tho. I know climbers are better than to leave trash in the campsites or crags, but it would help a lot if we each bagged some trash out when we come. Lets keep this awesome crag in great shape!

Comments: very fun and safe. sustained 5.8 climin with a few good 5.9 moves

Comments: The long traverse of Pitch 2 is not ideally protected. On P2, right after the 1st big 'crossing the void' move, you have a long 15-20 foot traverse to the right. If you're an experienced trad climber in harder grades and have an experienced second, this will be easy. If you are new to leading trad or following, this traverse can be scary and dangerous (potentially leading to a huge swing out for you or your second). And you can't ideally rappel off P1 anchors to ground.

Comments: The Montreat Wall is downhill and left of the Comatose area (farther away), and downhill and right of the Testpilots area (much closer than Comatose).
The hardest moves are thin, slabby friction moves. It's not very fun unless you just like that kind of climbing. Once you get to the anchor, you could walk left to another double bolt anchor to Top Rope that long Off Width crack in the big Right Facing corner, or just that 5.6ish face just right of the ow (off width). About 6' to the left of tha... more >>

Comments: I think some holds have fallen off, which make it more of a 5.7. Not fun for a beginner trad leader.

Comments: I think P1 is the same route as 'Bunky's Rest Day (5.8)' in 'Selected Climbs in NC'. I would not recommend this route to someone new to leading 5.8 trad. The climbing itself is fun and easy, but the protection made it really not fun for me. If you've lead a lot of 5.9 trad in NC, and don't mind run-out, you'll totally enjoy it. I only did Pitch 1. If I had some TCU's (mini-cams) it would've felt safer. There are plenty of cracks to put pro in on the 1st half of P1, but nuts feel weak here. ... more >>
