Mostly slabby or vertical riverside bluffs. This limestone is poor to good quality, depending on the line. The bluffs face west and don't have much shade in the afternoon. All seasons are good, but fall is best. Very vegetated and tick infested in the summer, and hot in the afternoons, too.
There is quite the mix of sport, trad, and mixed lines here, so bring all your gear. Only a 50 meter rope is required, though.
It can be worthwhile to check US Army Corps of Engineers water level measurements in locations nearby. High water will cause many areas at Trappers to be inaccessible, with northern areas being most impacted. Check the water levels by viewing the "Gage height, feet" plot at the link above if you don't want to make the trip and be forced to turn around. A large majority of the routes can be accessed when the water level is at 17 feet or below.
