Crag of the Month: The North Side of Looking Glass

Glass Menagerie - Jimmy Baker (

This month’s featured crag is the North Side of Looking Glass. 'Tis the season

for higher temperatures and we all want to keep climbing yet escape the heat. The

air temps may still be warm but you can climb in the shade in the afternoon at this

North-facing crag. Chocked full of fun, well-protected 10s, 11s and a few that are a

little easier, this is the crag for the early summer months. Try warming up on the

first pitch of Safari Jive and head over to The Seal where you can top rope Cornflake

Crake from the same anchor. Next check out the first pitches of Invisible Airwaves

and Creatures of Waste. If those haven’t worn you out yet go hop on Bombelay or

Extra Crimpy Chicken. There is a great topo of the North Side of Looking Glass in

Mike Reardon’s, “Southern Pisgah Rock and Ice”, which we carry at both of our locations!
