Table Rock sits high on the eastern ridge of Linville Gorge. It commands a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape of western North Carolina. This is a very popular destination for multi-pitch lead beginners and there is a tourist trail to the summit. There is a road that ends very close to the climbing area as well. These factors combine to create a rather circus-like atmosphere at times. Despite that, Table Rock is a fun, relaxing experience if approached with good judgement and knowledge. Jim Dandy, North Ridge and White Lightening are some of the most popular classics.
