Burkes Garden Roof Rock Climbing
Burkes Garden Roof (BGR) is a nicely featured 12ft roof just off of the side of the trail, northbound, from Walker Gap on the AT. Lots of problems and fun moves!
Head northbound from the parking lot on the AT (opposite direction/side of the road as the southbound trail sign taking you toward Walker Gap). Walk a good distance (less than 10min) and this will be 30ft to the right of the trail.

Toward the right side of the roof, go deep under the steepness to find the low, long, right facing, deep jug rail/crack. follow the ascending ramp to the next jug, and follow the features and shelf to the right to top out over the lower lip with use of whatever holds you can manage. Top out near the close tree, and grab the tree to help with the top out if you like (its there and should not be damaged, so use it if you like)....[more] Browse More Classics in VA
