Description:

3 pitches, starting from lunch ledge. The crux is pulling the overhang on the second pitch.Great climbing for it's grade, probably one of the best 5.6's in NC.You can walk off from the top. Starting from the bottom, you can climb 6 straight pitches of 5.6 or less. Makes for a nice long climb.

5 out of 5 stars Night Climb

After climbing Jim Dandy, we finished the evening on My Route. I would have to say it was much better in the dark. I let my partner lead the first pitch and I lead the second and third pitches. I combined both upper pitches into a single pitch. With proper gear placement, the drag is not that bad. The view was amazing, all I could see were the lights. I would highly recommend strapping on a headlight and giving it a try in the dark.

5 out of 5 stars Still Fun

Even though the climbing is quite easy, I just really enjoy this route. It is a very casual climb with excellent views. The pro is really good too. I just clip the bolts and don't bother with anything additional. The only spot that is even remotely difficult, if that, is just above the first belay. I stay to the left and climb over the mini roof. We climbed later in the day while the rock was shaded and cool and the black flies were out in full force. I think it would have been better to endure the heat from the sun than those little blood suckers. Hopefully, they will be gone soon.

5 out of 5 stars Always A Good Time

This is definitely one of my favorite routes at Table Rock, I never get tired of it. I lead the full route and turned it into two pitches instead of three for the sake of time by combining the upper two pitches. The rope drag was surprisingly light and I will probably climb it this way from now on.
