Description 

Bradley Falls has had a reputation of being dirty and poorly bolted, however it actually harbors a small series of well protected and exciting routes as well as some trad projects (for those daring enough). I would not recommend driving over two hours to get here, but if you are in the area it's a great place to check out!

This is a beautiful area, please LNT!


Driving Directions and Approach 

Off of I-26 take the Saluda Exit. Turn left off of the exit and drive 3 miles until you reach a pull-off parking lot on the left. At the parking lot continue down the obvious trail hugging the the left until you reach a stream. Cross the stream and continue up a hill. Once along the ridge line, veer off the trail at the second left. Hike a steep downhill until you reach a red rope. Climbing area is at the bottom of this trail. There are two sections; one by the falls, one further down stream. 25 min hike in.

Tragedy of The Commons 5.10 6b 20 VII- E2 5b  NC : Bradley Falls
This is an interesting traversing line that is good for the area and actually requires some "trad" skill.Start on small ledge below the left end of the wall with a bolt 15' up. Climb through a techy crux section to jugs. Continue up, passing gear and a pin to steeper terrain that leads to a chimney/dihedral. Get a subtle #1 camelot (shallow horizontal) up and right before stepping out to bolt. Move out and around the flakes, then up and through the last bulge with a bolt to an anchor.
