Description

East facing crag about 30-50 feet high. Nice views of the Slippery Rock Creek and other tourists going about their business. Lots of shade from the trees can keep sections of the rock damp for a while after rain.

There is a good bouldering traverse wall and a few good top-rope routes here. Better suited to the beginner/intermediate than the Breakneck Bridge crag. There are a few easy to moderate routes that aren't too steep mixed in with some fun overhanging stuff.

Getting There

Located across the river from the mill. Drive over the covered bridge and make a quick right onto the dirt Rim Road. Drive a 1/4 mile or so and park at the picnic tables with the kiosk noting the climbing area below. Walk 40 feet to the top of the cliff. Either walk/scramble to the base or rappel in.
