The furthest down the road of the main areas at Coopers. A bit more crowded than Tilted Tree or Roadside, especially with non-climber tourist hikers, who love to ask you questions.

Getting There 

Drive to the end of the road, to where there is a concessionaire stand and a turnaround/parking area. Hike to the left of the building, staying to the right of the main overlook trails. Shortly, you will see an obvious break through a cliffline, which has some slab steps set into it. This will take you down to the Rattlesnake Trail, which runs along most of the great bouldering areas here.

Featured Route For Upper Rock City

Unnamed (left of Roundhouse) V5- 6C  WV : Coopers Rock State Forest : ... : Roundhouse Boulder
Similar to Roundhouse, but not as aesthetic, with some sharp flakes. Start on obvious flake, move up through a pocket, a pinch, and a weird flake undercling to a big right move to finish on Roundhouse. Drop-off....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
