200-300 foot walls on the south side of canyon. There are a handfull of corner/crack lines, as well as a hand full of more difficult and high quality face climbs.

The Razors Edge feature provides one of the best views in Linville Gorge.

Getting There 

The best approach to the RJ trail is listed on the main page. From here, turn left and walk a few minutes (about 2-3) to the next trail leading down and right. Follow this down and right (passing the Zen Point turnoff on the left), then a small creek, to the top of the cliff. The path forks, with the left fork working its way down into the canyon (3rd class), and the right one going to the overlook's. Total time should be no more than 5 minutes from the RJ trail.
