Monday Morning Local Crags: Looking Glass Rock, NC


Looking Glass Rock is an amazing climbing destination, as it is peppered with routes on the South Face, North Face, Nose Area, Sun Wall, Invisible Wall and Hidden Wall to the top of the mountain.

The mountain is what’s known as a pluton monolith (a distinctive mass of igneous rock, typically several kilometers in dimension consisting of a single massive stone or rock which has been exposed via the process of erosion)

Looking Glass Rock offers free-climbing, multi-pitch or aid climbing with the North Face offering the toughest climbs, including a couple of 5.11s. The Nose and the Sun Wall stay in the 5.7-5.9 range.
