... over to the repel rings on the route next to me and moved the rope over. Well that was a little freaky but the route we ended up on was actually pretty fun. It was another 5.9 but with an 11 start. It was a tough start for sure but once you got over that crux, the route was super chunky and fun. I would go back for it.
It was a fun day. The weather was absolutely perfect, clear skies and sunny. We heard someone crying at one point so we looked over the trail and saw ...

... get across the river and into a good spot to view the waterfall. The water was cold, but High Falls was quite beautiful. We got a couple pictures and then headed back. By the time we got back to the car, it was getting late, but we still had an hour or so of daylight - more time for waterfalls! We drove just a short ways up NC-281 and parked on the side, just before Whitewater Church Road. From here, we hiked the short D.E.W. ...
