there are many good problems there, if you bring pads and are willing to devise some eliminates/variations. On the first short steep outcrop there is a nice pumpy lip traverse, and several sit-start problems, some obvious and some devised. On the big outcrop there are several splitter highball lines, the best of which is "welcome to umstead" a v2ish crackline directly over some back-breaking rocks. The corner to its right is fun though the top stays dirty. The arete right of that is fun and highball. The face just right of the arete is probably the best hard line there, "pipeline", ~v6ish. There are also some great traverse lines there, the "ramp" (v3) starts below "welcome" and follows the ramp right to a jug in the corner. The "ripper" (v6) traverse starts at the far left side of the wall and ends same as the ramp. There used to be the infamous "d.t.t.w." problem left of welcome but a key hold broke off after the first ascent (which is featured on dosage 1 I believe). Also, above the main wall is a short traverse wall, and ~200' right of that are two more short walls that offer good problems. Wait until fall/winter for best results -
