Description

Amazing collection of sport routes on the rim with Northern exposure directly across from Diamond Point. Lots of steep routes, big holds and shady summer days make this area a favorite of summer Rock Climbing guides, Raft guides and locals alike.

Important to know: this area is shady and stays wet after rain for at least a day.

Getting There

The GPS coordinates above are accurate. Take Route 16 out of Fayetteville, taking a left on the Gatewood Rd., just as Rt. 16 veers right. Drive through some windy curves, eventually taking a left on the Kaymoor Rd (signs may point to Kaymoor or Arrowhead Trails).
