Rockhouse Creek is a tiny headwater tributary of Wilson Creek, in Pisgah National Forest, south of Grandfather Mountain. This run is available only after heavy rain and has a small window of runnability. Rockhouse is a great quick warm-up before level 2 ft. doing or while running your shuttle for the Gragg Prong. It is permits No also a great run to do if you are waiting on the Gragg Prong to gradient 175 come down a little bit. This short and sweet run is very tight and scenery A technical. There are four main drops in this section and they all can be scouted from the road. The lines are pretty obvious.
