Approaching the South Face Nice Fall Colors.
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.
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.

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
