This route is also a left angling crack starting about 15' right of Sunny Daye. Follow the crack to its end and head up and and slightly left on clean rock. The guidebook shows the route intersecting Name Unknown but the most obvious line stays to its right and follows its own path. There are two old bolts at the top but they do not look very trustworthy. Use a tree at the top of the rock for a belay.
Walk off on trail to the left or rappel from a tree.

Dirty climb, but fun. Great trad lead. Could probably finish in single pitch with long enough rope, but we split it into two pitches. Two pitons halfway up. Used those with stopper placements for belay anchor.
Second pitch is run-out. Although it isn't vertical, it could be bad if you took a fall.
I only climbed this route again for the benefit of my climbing partner, but I have to admit that this one is a little fun. I might climb this route again if I returned but only if it was for a new climbing partner.
This route follows a nice, left angling crack system with ample opportunities for pro. At the top of the crack, follow clean rock to the top. The Climber's Guide to North Carolina shows the route connecting to Name Unknown but the most natural line stays to its right. Head straight to the top on the cleanest rock. Don't bother with the bolts at the top. This one is probably closer to a 5.5.
