Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!
Not sure if this feature ever had an official name but it has been called The Jolly Green Giant for quite a few years now. There are a number of steep and physically demanding lines up to 100 feet long on this cool and north facing feature making it worth the 15 minute approach from the car. There are about 6 individual lines here worth doing which makes for a good day for most folks - the pump sets in pretty fast here!
Directions below are very detailed but that should prove useful if the path happens to be overgrown (as it sometimes is).

This is, in my opinion, an excellent route for the grade, despite some hollow rock in the middle portion of the route. It is very steep and will make even the strongest climbers struggle with the impending forearm pump!Climb past a pin and 3 bolts to a stance. Continue up the arete past gear (including a fixed stainless stopper) and a bolt. Continue up the arete to a bolt/chain anchor.There is a left variation that is easier and moves left at last bolt to the anchors for "They Might Be Giants...[more] Browse More Classics in NC
