Pisgah Crag Rock Climbing
Pisgah Crag is a small crag north of the main cliff, just a few minutes hike from route 5A along Willoughby Lake. The cliff is perched just above the road overlooking the lake. Good quality rock facing west with lots of shade. Great destination for a mid summer after work climb and swim.
Park in the large pull off on the lake side of the road just south of the waterfall on route 5A along Willoughby Lake.
No defined trail but two general approach paths. Walk across the road and scramble directly up the steep bank with loose rock and dirt. Or, walk down the road 100 yards and head up the large vegetated bank into the woods. The hillside will level out, continue left along an animal trail until you reach the cliff. 5 minute approach.
