The view from Comatose, 5.8 Rumbling Bald, NC
Probably not the most popular area at Rumbling Bald, but the Comatose area offers a good selection of all types of climbing. From the classic arching crack of Comatose
, to the thin edged face climbing of Rusty Redneck
, with a few hard bolted routes and some longer gear routes all mixed in together. Although the number of climbs in this area isn't large, there is enough action to keep one busy for a day.
From the parking lot, follow the main approach trail (old jeep road) to where it meets and turns into a smaller trail. Follow the trail up past a boulder field near the base of the cliff. Continue up the trail then contour left along the cliff.
