We did the loop trail past the falls, the farm site, up the steps, over the top and back down to the parking lot.

WyomingSummitsBest friction in the SE!  Sucess!


Climbed the Arch numerous times along with numerous routes, many R and X rated, on either side of the arch. Some of the best multi pitch friction you'll get in the east! 50ft runouts are the norm here!

Stone and I have a love hate relationship. Slab climbing is tough to grow accustomed to but is good training for trusting your feet. It is every NCer's responsibility to climb the Great Arch so go do it.

Excellent network of trails - the loop is great. Heading down from the waterfall one enters the meadow and can watch the rock climbers above.

Went up the summit loop after climbing the Arch the day before. Nice views, even in cloud cover and rain. Cool looking lightning strikes at the top.

Yeah, what can I say, probably the most routes I have ever done at one place in my life! It is infectious! Don't for get the North Wall! Thanks, Chief for sharing the line so many times! You are right Jess Tucker, Sandy Flemming, Vince Davis, Steve Longnecker, Dan Hartman, just a few I remember as larger than life! Jess was the best solo climber I have ever seen. The first time I showed up there with my Yosemite rack he was soloing Storm in a Tea cup, just Hawiian running shorts and a pair of flip flops on a runner around his waist, he said, "go put all the stuff in the trunk of your car and do Great White way!" So, we did. I was hooked for life!Drinking beer at the camp ground was stellar too! Sorry about your tent, mate! But Thor had to lay down, right on top of your tent, wake me in the morning!

Date Climbed: Feb 17, 2008


Great weekend. On Saturday I climbed U-Slots to the Great Arch, then rapped back down. Did the first pitch of The Pulpit. Would like to finish that one next time I visit. I didn't lead any of this...hat's off to our lead climber...some scary runouts on some of these routes.
Settled for the summit loop trail on Sunday, as rain made the rock too slick for good climbing.

Great climbing and a thrill to look down between your knees and see 50-60 feet to your last pro. Fine sunny day with Caroline, Leighton and Ryan.

big_gU Slot -> Great Arch -> summit -> summit trail down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 14, 2006


First this is a really nice state park. It was my first time here so I had to do the classic Great Arch which was just as great as promised. The summit trail down was an impressive hike too. We took a detour to see the north face. Lots of bare rock that reminded me of some mtns in VT, NH, & ME. Whether a hiker or a climber this is a must do.

I climbed at Stone Mountain once in the summer of '99. I remember a very hot weekend of climbing. We climbed "Entrance Crack" 5.4R, "White Way Direct" 5.9, "Block Route" 5.8, "Great White Way" 5.9, "Great Brown Way" 5.10c, "Great Arch" 5.5, "Rainy Day Women" 5.10a, "No Alternative" 5.5, and "Electric Boobs" 5.9+.

Stone Mountain N.C. is yet another lesson on friction climbing. I remember several not so unexpected falls, and returned to Table Rock after that weekend to climb better than ever.
