This south facing cliff offers mainly 5.12 sport climbing on high quality stone. The white rock is smooth to the eye but somehow very very sticky for the hands and shoes. The main section of the wall is unique with sloppers, handjams, and sidepulls on face climbs. There are also some classic cracks so bring a rack too.
Take HWY 27 North to Dayton and turn left at second red light, which will be north 378 (South Market street) about .4 of a mile and turn left on Delaware Ave (just across from Robinson Manufacturing Co.). After turning left on Delaware Ave follow it for approx. a mile and cross hwy 30 and continue on for 1.3 miles and you will see small white church on right called Bethel Holiness church, entrance on left. Look for Laurel-Snow sign. Follow gravel road to parking lot and you will see the trail head and Kiosk.
