This wall is the second-most western wall at Pilot. It is identified by a large chimney-which could easily be mistaken for a cave-right in the middle of the wall. The rock is good and there are a couple of fun, easy routes, so expect at least a few people on nice days.
From the Three Bears Gully, head west for 3-5 minutes. Look for a giant chimney with a "cave." There is a large overhang about 7-10 ft. high that hangs over the trail just before you reach The Beach.

The crux is towards the top where a brief overhang exists with some good jugs. There's an easier variation when you get to the crux by going right, although you will be swinging left a bit if you fall here....[more] Browse More Classics in NC
