Description

Climbing
The Breaks Interstate Park offers sandstone climbing similar to that of the New River Gorge and the Obed with spectacular views.

Climbers must obtain a permit and complete a waiver to climb at Breaks, which must be renewed every calendar year.

Developing
As a relatively new climbing area, the potential for development is vast. Developers must comply with the Breaks developer guidelines. The Breaks is currently offering hardware for new development. To apply for the hardware, developers must complete a hardwear application and wait for park approval.

Lodging
The Breaks offers hotel rooms, cabins, and camping. Visit breakspark.com for more information.

Other
The Breaks also offers outstanding mountain biking, whitewater rafting, hiking, and fishing.

Excited about this area. Thanks for those who worked hard to get it open! Here is a map that has been re-created, with permission, based on the original Gus Glitch topo. He and Koma were some of the first climbers here in 1992. Find the map here: grounduppublishing.com/?p=1081 Jun 15, 2016
