  • Description 

    Three distinct pitches are the flavor of this NC wall adventure climb. first pitch is 50 foot left rising traverse under a roof. second pitch is stellar leftfacing corner/crack. third pitch is wandering face with questionable gear but enough to get you through. once on the ledge many options exist for the exit to the gorge rim.


    Location 

    continue past bumblebee and the corner. at first option scramble up to ledge. follow for 15 more minutes. scramble behind pillar and then the start looking up to see the leftfacing second pitch. start route off boulder or any other option you think you are man enough for...hehehe.


    Protection 

    doubles up to 3 camalot. headlamp?
