Description 

Unlike the more forbidding Looking Glass areas, the South Side has something for everybody. Beginners can hop on easier climbs like Lichen or Not or Good Intentions; moderate leaders can hone their skills on great lines like Gemini Crack; and seasoned climbers can push themselves on harder routes like Dinkus Dog. Most of the routes at the South End are multi-pitch, but route-finding is straightforward and descent options include plentiful bolted rap stations.


Getting There 

From the road fork, continue up the gravel road a short distance to the Slickrock Falls trailhead, located where the road takes a hard left. Hike up the trail, following switchbacks, for about three-quarters of a mile, ending at the base of the wall in the Bloody Crack area.

Monica on Mettle Detector South Side Looking Glass NC

Mettle Detector 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- E6 6b  NC : Looking Glass Rock : South Side
Beauty of a line. Hard interesting moves wake you up... then it gets a bit wild and possibly dynamic. Continue up through an endurance section with very nice large holds then rest up and calm the breathing before a desperate thin finish. One of my personal favorites in the NC slab game....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
