Description

There are a handful of routes and projects here, along with two of the most classic crack climbs at Wintergreen. Directly around the corner from the Beginner Slab.
Private property, so keep a low profile. Details

Getting There

Hike ~10 minutes down the Blackrock Trail (yellow blaze,) from the parking lot until it intersects with the Brimstone Trail (red blaze.) Turn right at the junction, hiking downhill, and in a few minutes you will see the Beginner Slab off to your right. Make your way to the large shelf below and to the left of the Beginner Slab. The Cracks are on the south facing wall.
