Description

This area is located to the left of the main trail, behind a large fire circle. Winter and fall are the best seasons to climb here when the vegetation is low. Watch out for the ice that gathers in some areas during the winter. The rock definitely needs some cleaning as there is a lot of loose dirt, especially towards the top. There are several noticeable routes. The first is a large flake that has chains for top-roping, but it could possibly be done as a bouldering problem. About 20 feet to the right of the flake, another problem begins on two decent crimps. There are several other possible routes that need some serious cleaning. Don’t even bother coming here in the summer, the vegetation is out of control, the bugs are terrible, and the crowds that hangout by the river across the trail are obnoxious and trash the place.

Getting There

After parking in the Tredegar St. parking lot, walk across the suspension bridge and head towards the trail. Walk upstream for a couple minutes and you will notice a large fire circle. The wall is behind the circle and is very noticeable from the trail. Its probably about a 5 minute walk from the parking lot.

This all looks REALLY fun!! I've never been here but it certainly looks like highball bouldering material in my book! are there any access issues other than the summer bugs and rowdy folks? with the top-rope gear it sounds well climbed so I'm thinking no? Thanks for the posts Ryan! May 25, 2011
