This climb ascends a free standing chunk of rock, which is a rarity for NC. While not at Eagle Rock, it is plainly visible from the overlook. Looking back down the ridge, at the far base of the second cliff is a flat topped tower/spire/pinnacle. Bushwhack to it. Climb the side facing the saddle (south), which is the shortest side. Scramble up to a ledge. Traverse right to the east face. Clip the lone, hangerless bolt and mantle to the top. Rap off the south side from a single bolt.
Obvious flat top tower at base of second cliff away from Eagle Rock. This is about as remote as the north side gets.
natural gear, one bolt with no hanger.
