Howdy fellow climbers... just wondering what the closest camping is to the Linville Amphitheater. Trying to get an early start on Mummy & Daddy on Saturday.

Cheers,
Dane

There are a couple of small backcountry sites on the approach trail to the gully. But it's much easier just to camp at the parking lot. Expect a zoo on Sat. Mark O'Neal

You can camp at the top of the prow if you want. NFS camping rules are 50' from a trail and 100' from a road. TomCaldwell

After you get done climbing be sure to head up to ...
To give a little more detail to Toms post, there is an actual bivy cave/overhang that makes a good place to sleep. I've stayed there in a downpour and stayed dry. However, there are not any great places around there to put up a tent (flat) I would recommend staying by the parking lot as others have said. The approach doesn't take that long. Adam Paashaus

The approach is easy enough. Camp near the parking lot so you can enjoy the benefits of a stove and cooler. Get up early and have a blast. Dustin Drake

Pete belays 2nd pitch Little corner
i've always eyed the top of the Chimneys as a coool place to camp, however hard ground. But don't leave your stuff up there, break it down and stash it so others don't have to "ruin their experience" by eyeballing it while you're off climbing. Skip the campfire, set up late, break down early, scamper to be the first on the Mummy. If someone gets there before you thank them for finding the start of the route for you, do the Daddy, then do the Mummy later same day. Woo Hooo love the Gorge don't ferget Shortoff next trip.

Hammocks will eliminate the hard ground. Scariest camping ever was at TR parking lot after a hurricane passed. The wind on that ridge is insane. Make sure you camp lower if it ever becomes a factor. TomCaldwell
