NC Highcountry Climbing

As fall begins to arrive throughout the NC mountains, it is perfect weather to get a few more days of climbing in at Ship Rock before colder weather makes this crag too blustery. Phil and I squeezed in a tasting at Highland Brewery Friday complete with live bluegrass before heading up to camp near Linville. The evening temperatures are nice enough right now to pull out your fleece and even enjoy a campfire again.

Saturday the weather was great at Ship Rock, although by mid afternoon it was pretty sunny and warm. Still, the humidity was much lower than in recent months and the holds were plenty sticky on steep routes like Welcome to Watauga, Revival and the rather humbling Castaway.

Come on in the shop if your fleece selection is looking ragged. We have some Montbell Fleece that won't give you sticker shock and will keep you toasty in the high country.
