Laurel Knob

The tallest cliff in the Eastern U.S., Laurel Knob was the first acquisition in the Carolina Climber Coalition‘s history. Big and wild, Laurel is home to fantastic slab and water groove climbing. Laurel’s remote location and height make for a truly unique experience and it’s likely you will be the only party on the cliff, or at least it can feel that way. The approach is long, but it’s well worth the walk.
