Looking Glass

Looking Glass is a 500 foot dome thrust up into  densely vegetated Pisgah National Forest, near Brevard in North Carolina. The "Glass", as locals say is the best known place for rock climbing in North Carolina, and said to be the east coasts Yosemite. This is because of the variety of climbs all in one crag, epic multi pitch climbing, and the unique rock features called "eyebrows" which look really cool on the rock, yet offer difficult hands and feet.  

Having some days off we ventured to Looking Glass, and climbed one of the popular multi pitches at the nose area called "Sundial Crack" a classic 3 pitch climb with 500 feet of vertical to the top of the dome.  Topher, myself, and Sean a college friend of Topher's climbed the 3 pitches of the climb and had a blast. It was an amazing climb, difficult with the "eyebrows", and of course up top 360 degree view of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountain range. This is a must climb if you are in the North Carolina area, and are not afraid of heights! 
Check out some pics from the climb below

Happy Climbing.....Alexis & Topher
