Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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.
