Description 

This short little roof is right off of the trail. While it’s not much, it has two nice lines and a tough project. It's located just off of the trail in and right before you get to the Ginseng area.

The landing isn’t bad although there are some ankle grabbing hole under the leaves (I’ll try to fill those in some next time I’m there) to watch out for.

Getting There 

Follow the black blazed markers up the trail. As you reach the top of the hill and start to descend back down to where you will find the Ginseng Area, watch to the right of the trail for the small but enticingly steep and blank roof with a thin crack down the left side.

Featured Route For Fringe Roof

Fringe Crack V0-1 4+  VA : Grayson Highlands State Par... : ... : Fringe Roof
This one is a great warm-up for "Fringe Traverse" or the "Fringe Benefits Project".Start under the roof in the back of the deep crack seam. Work out of the roof using any feet and "top out" over the easy terrain. This version is V0... For a v1-2 ending work right to avoid the easy ending and press out the full-on mantle by working right and only using the right roof lip for the end of this line as well (finish with the mantle for "Fringe Traverse" & "Benefits")... Or do it twice and do both!...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
