5 out of 5 stars Good clean fun

Highly recommended. First 2 pitches are easy and fun. Last pitch is a little harder and a little more fun. Heady move over good gear getting up the corner...and then it's big steep jugs to the top. We finished straight up through the notch (5.7 finish?). It's like a dream come true really.

5 out of 5 stars Fun times.

Did this in two pitches with a 70m rope. Crux protects well I thought.

5 out of 5 stars Gunks climbing in N.C.

Amazing P3 corner to roof. Thought it was more technical than Dopey and just as pumpy. Reminded me of the Gunks only more remote and taller.

4 out of 5 stars Dang!

That last pitch is goooooooood. Techy climbing to big jug hauling. First pitch is a bit ill defined in the Select guide, but second and third (crux) pitches are obvious.

4 out of 5 stars Full Value Sustained 5.9 Climbing

This is full value and is sustained 5.9 climbing. If you only want to climb the last pitch you can rap down from the bivy cave and traverse over on a ledge system. I haven't done it but two dudes climbed The Golden Rule that way. I have lots of pics on my trip report here http://www.onthesharpend.com/2009/04/05/construction-job-on-shortoff-mountain-nc/

5 out of 5 stars Great climb

The arching corner at the start of the crux pitch is much more technical and demanding than the overhanging jug haul above!

5 out of 5 stars This is a good one

The roof section has good stances and protects with finger size gear with aplomb. The arching rock before it has some spice and I thought it was just as difficult as the roofs. Do not follow the Shull directions for the 2nd pitch! Climbing the arete to the right of the grassy ledge wil put you in a world of hurt. Just continue up the 1st pitch dihedral until you have to tic up a small arete on the right side. A 6 foot by 1 foot ledge will be immediatley to your right at this point. Get some gear, pull a small overhang, and climb a left facing corner to the next ledge. Lastly, watch yourself on the start of the last pitch; unless I was off route this has some bad fall potential.
