Description

a very remote area with a giant roof as well as a few other lines.

Getting There

Between Shumont Mountain and Hanging Chain area. Look around and you may stumble across it.
I always approached via Eagle Rock on the North Side. I had a deal with previous owners since we were working together to help build the park. Being able to drive certainly made approach easier, but it is a lovely hike. Get an online parking permit from CRSP.  From the parking area hike up the 4WD road. Be sure to stop at Eagle Rock on the left for stunning views of the north side of the bald.  The road goes uphill to the right from Eagle then it forks. Go left downhill. You will pass two short slick rock sections. At bottom of the second section look for an overgrown road cutting back hard right. Take this turn. Follow it downhill. You are now on southside of ridge. See photo. At end of road there is a small creek. A faint trail continues a short distance to a ridgecrest. Cut left down the ridge until it is easier to drop into the broad drainage to the right which is below Shumont. Cross the drainage and crest the next ridge. At the ridgecrest turn left and go until your jaw drops when you see the giant roof. Climb it then maybe blaze a trail to Hanging Chain and perhaps an easier future approach.
