Looking for climbing partners in North Carolina. Specifically the Linville Gorge and Rumbling Bald areas. I am up for anything from top roping, to bouldering to multi-pitch.

Hanging Rock proper is closed to climbing. You are allowed to climb at Cooks Wall and Moores Wall located inside park boundaries. Both are in MP database. Additionally, excellent bouldering can be found within the park.

do you aid climb? I am looking for a friend in Asheville that aid climbs I'd like to try to free a line that I cannot get up without aid gear. The line would be probably pretty fun for an aid climber I imagine (not really sure what motivates an aid climber tbh tho).

the line is psychedelic delusions of the digital age in LG

Try to free it without aiding it to the top. It will be more fun. I've managed it up to the second bolt very unclean a few years back. Fun to work on lead and not TR. It's a great aid line too.

no, YOU.

lets just work it together in May again. Its definitely my style. The style I hate the most but sadly am best at.

but how can you look at that line as a climber and not want to climb it :)

The bottom part protects pretty well with nuts and small cams then you get the bolts (which I suppose could be stickclipped past/worked on TR easily)...then I hear its small brass after the bolts. Is that right beta?

ya its like small nuts/cams to #2 then bolts and small cams between. another bolt or two then the super thing part is pretty run out- some brass, small cam (purple tcu size and smaller), and there is this one weird pod thing. Sadly i wont be able to get on this gem for a while...med school isn't leaving me exactly with hard climbing fitness levels or a lead head. Its by far the best route at the glass i've tried.

On aid micro cam hooks are a god send as are small brass

there's a good topo on here with gear beta too.

The fall trying to clip bolt 1 is not pleasant btw...the slab comes at you quick. I havent gotten past bolt 2 free. Aid solo'd it twice now...whipped once on it w/ a clean fall.

I'll be based in Raleigh/Cary/Chapel Hill, NC during April and May, and am also looking for outdoor partners. Keen on getting to Linville and Stone Mtn (haven't been yet), and if anyone's ever up for hoofing it to Seneca.

I live in Chapel Hill, but I'm coming to Charlotte to spectate the final Trainwreck Tour comp at Inner Peaks this Saturday, and I'm dying to hit up some crack climbs at Rumbling Bald on Sunday. I have a fat trad rack, a good lead head, and 5+ years of nonstop multi-pitch crack climbing under my belt (from my time living in SoCal circa 2005-2011). Would be psyched to lead or follow anything 5.7-5.11. Any takers, please PM me... THANKS!
