Description

A sunny area with a short approach, Banana Belt has some good (but not great) moderates.

Getting There

Update 12/2019: Walk downstream about 100' from Pub Wall & wade across shallow still water just above a group of rocks or negotiate the primitive crossings downstream between the rocks and shores.

Consistent high water this year is to be expected.
