DescriptionThanks to the South/Southwest facing cliffs, Cedar Bluff is a great destination on any Sunny winter day. The Southern exposure creates a micro climate on the wall and temperatures average 10-20 degrees warmer on the wall.
Cedar Bluff is comprised of 30+ routes/problems along a half mile cliff band. The 80-90 ft tall cliffs provide a great resource for anyone desiring to practice multi pitch. The site contains 5 multi-pitch routes and over a dozen routes at or below 5.10 and you can set up a top rope on every one of them. The bouldering at Cedar Bluff ranges primarily from V0-V5, but there are harder lines and even unfinished projects on the site. If you come for bouldering, bring brushes to give the stone a little TLC.

Take Cedar Grove road to the church, park in the lot, to the right side (be nice, quiet, and polite) as far from the church as you can reasonably get; don't use the outhouse. Follow the trail to the cliff.
