DescriptionJackson Crag is now a pretty cool outing! In the early 90's the crag was briefly visited and a few quality routes were done. The crag has finally been brought to life and offers a variety of routes. Most of the routes are sport, but some gear is needed on a couple routes. The crag is broken into a few different sectors scattered along the hillside each of which provides a different style of climbing. Most sectors go into the shade in the early afternoon. A stick clip is recommended due to the blocky nature of the base of the cliff. This crag combined with Eagle Mountain Cliff (5 min) makes for an excellent weekend.

Getting ThereFrom Jackson Village drive north on Carter Notch Road for 0.8 miles to the Eagle Mountain House Inn on the left. Pull in the main entrance and park in the highest tier on the left by the wood line.
From the parking area look for the Eagle Mountain sign. Follow the road for 150 yards to a junction. Take a right at the Eagle Mountain sign and follow the trail uphill staying left at a barn on top of the hill. Follow the trail for about a half a mile to a small vernal pool. Stay on the trail to the right and follow it passing a few short rocky outcrops. Continue uphill for 200 yards to a short talus hill with a cairn at the base. (The left edge of Eagle Mountain Crag can be seen to the right of the trail). Take a left and follow a climbers trail with cairns down into a ravine with rock outcrops scattered around the woods for about 5 minutes until you reach a small stream. Follow the stream downhill around a small outcrop with sap lines and the crag will be visible to the right. The trail will lead you to the base of the Vlad Wall/Sap Wall area on the left side of the lower tier. Total approach time is about 25-30 minutes.
