Comments: Hey thanks for the info, I barefooted too it in Feb and March and it was hella cold but also worth it. When the trail veers right there used to be a log bridge to the left but it was washed away(more like collapsed, logs are still there ) a couple of months ago. I'll probably try to bring fishing chest waders and rebuild it in the next couple of weeks.

Comments: Finally headed up to this crag after over a year of beta hunting. Honestly I was mostly worried about some chump tossing a rock through my windshield, as I have read more than one vandalism warning. No issues, easy to find, right on the Cumberland Trail. Parking is limited, room for maybe 6-8 trucks. 10 minute approach to moderate creek crossing, then a steep but short trail to the base.

Comments: Very Icy muddy quagmire today. Was only able to boulder up to second bolt of rocking chair before rock got too wet. Recommend a helmet when checking out routes, monster chunk of ice sheared off and landed beside me today, would have crushed my gourd.

Comments: How far of a hike is this from the bridge? And where is the best place to cross the creek, I'm tryin to get to the River Wall, but the creek would have swept my azz away today. It may just be a bad time for this area due to snow melt, rain, and run-off.

Comments: Anyone been to the little clear creek area lately? I headed down the trail today after finding too much ice and melt on Lily Bluffs. Took the trail right by the bathroom by the bridge and followed it to the creek, which was 3 feet deep and raging. Is there a good crossing or bridge I don't know about or should I just ditch the boots and roll up my pants?
