Description

30 - 50 foot cliff that contains some more difficult climbs in the area. Part of the cliffline faces the river (so be sure you can get back up) and the other faces down stream.

Getting There

Take a right after the footbridge from the parking lot. Hike 500 yards to the entrance of the Billy Goat Trail on your left. Follow that past Crag X and then another 700 yards (past the small pondish looking thing) you'll see the square-cut-looking cliff along the river on your left.

Yes, though of course jumping into the River is illegal, and people are cited with regularity.... Nov 16, 2013

Is this the popular cliff jumping area? I've deep water soloed several routes after jumping, and some are quite good. Sep 17, 2012
