Description

The Overpass Area is located directly west of the Route 68 overpass, and is the area furthest down the main path if you turn right after coming down the main stairs. The approach is still very easy (you follow the trail created by the old railroad bed) and it takes approximately 5 minutes. If you go under the overpass... you've gone too far.

This area stays in the shade all day due to the tree cover and tends to seep more than the other cliffs in the area, but some routes will still be dry after a rain. Tops of some climbs may have loose rock (Tire Fire and Meltdown in particular). Always be careful when climbing and belayers should wear helmets as a precaution. 

Getting There

After walking past the kiosk down onto the main trail, go right (the river will be on your left) and walk approximately .5 mile down the path until you get to the overpass. The wall will be on the right.
