Pilot Mountain

Climbs 109 – Rocktype Quartzite – Altitude 702m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
A small but very accessible cliff. The rock (quartzite) is not always stellar but has some very fun climbs. Be careful not to block the hiking trail which often lies at the base of the climbs.

The sport routes start in the Ampitheatre, which has some high-quality climbs ranging from 5.7-5.13a. Farther up the row is the North Carolina classic, Devil in the White House. Underneath the parking lot are higher cliffs which can be done trad or top-rope from a top belay.

Pilot Mountain is a great place to take first-timers and introduce beginners to outdoor climbing because of the ease of climbs, and accessibility to all parts of the state.

Approach notes
Climbing on the Pilot Mountain knob is not permitted.
