Description

A nice climb right on the edge of the New River. There are two two-bolted anchors you can top rope from, both with great views of the river. Between the two anchors, you can get 4-5 routes out of this slab. I believe there are some climbs on the back side of this slab that can be set up also.

Getting There

Take Mccoy rd. from Blacksburg towards the river. This will end in a T at Big Falls rd. take a right on Big Falls Rd. take Big Falls rRd. for about 1 mile. You will see houses on your left the whole way and eventually a kind of park area with some parking on the right and a take out for tubers. The road is now right next to the river with no houses in between. Park here, cross the very active train tracks and there is a great slab of rock on the left.

Scramble up the left side of the slab to set-up your top-rope. You can also make it up the right but it's more sketchy. There is poison ivy everywhere so be careful!
