Mikey's Mantle. Must do route on the slab wall

Description 

As the name implies, this is slab climbing. The routes here are good training for some of the more serious granite friction climbing areas in North Carolina.

Getting There 

At the bottom of the descent gully, turn left. The routes on the Slab Area wall begin here. Alternatively, rap in from the anchors for All I Wanted Was a Pepsi (you'll see these on the bald as you're coming down the descent trail before getting to the gully).

Climbing Season



Weather station 4.9 miles from here

Frictionary 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  GA : Currahee Mountain : Slab Area
Watch the start of this route...as you start the route and make a couple of moves you are quickly high off the deck as the cliff drops down hill from the start of this route. Smear and slab your way up past bolts and the occasional gear placement. One of the good routes in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in GA
