Just reaching the second bolt on Turkey Shoot

Description 

A great mental challenge for the confident 5.8 leader. Requiring balance and skill, somewhat slopey moves take you up the face past 3 bolts.

Location 

On the left end of the center wall of the Amphitheater. First bolted line to the right of the Crackin' Up corner.

Protection 

3 bolts, anchors

This route is very polished from about 10 yrs of water trickling down it. They must have rediverted the trail, because the water doesn't seem to flow down the cliff face anymore. It's a really good slab climb, and one of my first outdoor climbs with the NCSU Rock Climbing class I took in college.

This is an excellent route and is definitely one of my favorites at pilot. The second bolt is pretty high up there, but the clipping stance is great.

Beautiful route, but I think the "R" rating in the guidebook on the carolinaclimbers.org may be warranted. There is a tenuous move before you can clip the second bolt that if you blew might result in a groundfall.

Fun route when it's dry.
