Comments: This is likely better as a TR from the P1 Seal anchors than a lead...as least it was for me!

Comments: Hey Pilsner Prophet, thanks for all the comments. That sounds like it. The bolts were upgraded to SS a few years ago. Fun route with many little crystals, it deserves a name!

Comments: This thing is filthy due to erosion caused by the overlook approach trail. If water bars were installed up top to prevent erosion, it might be less sandy.

Comments: An additional thanks to Mike T and Ron F for getting the ball rolling on this area. Read below from the Access Fund website posted summer 2013.

Carolina Climbers Revive Climbing at Rocky Face

Central North Carolina has a newly opened climbing area, thanks to the work of Carolina Climber's Coalition (CCC) and Boone Climbers Coalition (BCC). "Rocky Face is an old quarry with routes that were developed in the 80s," says Mike Trew, CCC/BCC board member. Last year, Alexander County established the... more >>

William; see the management plan above. Per the Management Plan, Camping is not allowed on CCC property, which includes the rock.

On a side note, the kiosk has fallen. We attempted to resurrect it but it may need to be rebuilt. This may take a few seasons.

The good news is, a new side trail has been built to the Biopsy/ Girdle area. Thanks CCC volunteers!

Comments: Fun route... looking at Kelley topos and climbing the neighboring conceivable routes, I am convinced that this line either is the first pitch of Lucky Charms (a 5.8R/X pitch from the 80's) or climbs just left of Lucky Charms. The Kelley topo shows Lucky Charms leaving from a the tree island, aiming to the right of a moss pad under the head wall. This route does just that, but slightly left of the moss. Lucky Charms tops out the head wall at hard X rated terrain.
Intriguing moderate climbing eit... more >>

Comments: The FA party has granted permission for a two bolt anchor to be placed up on the ledge. Go for it if you have the proper means.

Comments: Cool Picture, I believe this is not Boaz. I believe Boaz is reached further up by the main overlook. The pic shows a 5.11 on the arete (Disarmament?), Carolina Lightning up the 5.10 lightning crack, and Lightning Corner, a 5.6 in the obvious corner. If this place saw some love, it would be much improved!

Comments: A bit of background on the line since inquiry was posted: Sean and Medina bolted the chimney, bailing to the Fruit Loops anchors. A few weeks later, Sean, Brian and Cole Gulden and I returned to do it all free with the awkward left finish (spring/summer 2011). Sean and Brian had seen it and wanted to give it a go. We drew straws, I got the lead. I was Mid way through the crux when we heard a call for help to our right. It was a tragic rappelling accident from a party we did not know and a 5 hou... more >>

Comments: Austin; I think you were not on Conception, you were on Bunkys Rest Day, which certainly should have an R. Right of Bunky's is a gully with a rap tree for Beeline/Praying Mantis, then an unknown R/X with an aluminum hanger, then Conception. TCU's would help both of these routes. The upcoming guidebook should help.

Comments: 5.9 may be more accurate than 10a. While not the most aesthetic climbing, this route has one of the best views in Pisgah

Comments: One of those perfect combinations of geology and creative humans!
The only down side is the bolts are non stainless and need replacing as of 3/13. The anchors have been updated though.

Comments: Fun holds. The bolts were probably marginal the day they were put in but now they are awful. Bring gear to place to the crack out right.
