Warning Access Issue: SOUTH SIDE CRAGS ARE CLOSED DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

ALL CLIMBING AND ALL OTHER RECREATION IS NOW CLOSED AT THE SOUTH SIDE CRAGS. PLEASE CLIMB SOMEWHERE ELSE.

The "South Side" of the Meadow River is one of the most diverse areas in the entire NRG region, with climbs from 5.4 to 5.14, sport and trad, summer shade, great undocumented bouldering, and swimming holes. For this reason, it's been getting quite crowded over the last few years, and right now there are some access issues with the landowner (see "access issues" in this section before making a trip here).

Getting There Suggest change
