Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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).
