is that thing wedged in the crack above you?! It looks like a rusted out section of fencing or something. Rugged.
Welcome. While there is a lot of BS that goes on here, SP has much value. There are a lot of good people on it. Have fun climbing in NC- there is a wealth of good stuff there, & the home of the "running belay." Ha ha! The WA submissions are good, too. Thanks for sharing.
I just made the climb again today. Turns out it is a blueberry bush. Go figure
