Sly Truths 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  NC : Rumbling Bald : Hanging Chain
This route features fun and exposed face climbing and makes a great warmup for the harder climbs in the area and may also stress your truth telling abilities.Climb up the slabby first section past two bolts to a blocky narrow ledge. Plug in some gear and then climb up and right past 4 bolts to a small roof. Get a piece or two over the roof in a small seam. Yard over the roof and then step up and left to the last bolt. A few more moves and the fantastic belay ledge is reached....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
