This is the place to come for an easy approach to some long, steep, and classic routes. There are also a hand full of easier routes here, and many newer routes not listed in the Williams Guide. Hopefully over time, folks will populate the this site with information on the newer routes.
Follow the Propp's Ridge Road approach for all of the South Side Meadow Crags. At the point where you turn left on to the railroad grade continue for .3 miles to a campsite area on the right. Park in the campsite, or if it is full, there are many places here to pull off and park, just be sure to keep your vehicle completely off the road. From the campsite, walk down the road about 150 yards and look for a trail on the left about 100 feet before passing the second power line pole. Follow this trail up the hill for a short distance to reach the very overhanging cliff. The first route that you will come to is Crossing the Line, 5.13b.
