Black mountain -what can I say- this place has eluded climbers for years. Armed with only a ½ complete printout guidebook that was last updated on August of 2002 it’s a full on adventure getting around. The forest is dense and the smell of pine is rich; the likely hood that you’ll run into the mystery folk who’s car/cars you saw in the lot are slim to none, with that being said a welcoming sense of solitude is easily found here -a more personal experience. Recollecting visuals from climbing media binges I peek around trees and creep through stained granite corridors in hopes of finding one of the many powerful lines established by local elitist that kept/keep it low key. “Just a little further, maybe over that hill, perhaps around the bend…” echo in my head leading me to more. Exploring with hope but no expectation is part of the full experience here, is this what the dudes that know what’s up have been trying to preserve? Will it be lost with the helping hand of a real guidebook? Will the masses bring this grand peace to an ugly end? Maybe I should put this weed down… The zone is dope. There’s more than you can hope for in any grade range and the views are spectacular. Go get it! First four unknown problems were climbed in an unknown sector near the Lookout Tower, enjoy.
