Nice fall day. Moved from main cedar page.
This north facing crag has been known to ice-climbing locals for quite a while. There are prominent water flows that may interfere with climbing some of the classic features. But when the weather warms and the rains slow down, this is a premier Southern Blue Ridge destination. Recently 'rediscovered' this cliff has seen a spate of new development by the likes of Sean Cobourn, Stephen Scoff, and Nathan Brown.
At the Butter Gap intersection take the rising trail on your left. You will soon descend into a saddle. From here head along a faintly marked climbers trail on your left until you reach your destination.

This was the first route to crack the roof. It is "controversial" due to the pitch two bolt ladder. Some folks think it will go free at 5.13. 1.At left end of large roof band, climb fun 5.10 face to a belay shared with Gay By Proxy.2. Follow the bolt ladder out the roof to the right to a hanging belay.3. Climb a difficult, steep water groove to a bolted belay. 4. You can continue up lichen slab, 5.4 if it is dry, to the top if you want and hike out right on a trail of sorts. Or rap the rout...[more] Browse More Classics in NC

The hike in to the north face just got a whole lot easier due to some much-needed trail re-working. This wall gets a lot of afternoon sun this time of year, so go get you some!
