Hello all! I'm taking my family for a stay at Wintergreen (Central Virginia) over the 4th of July, and if possible, we would like to top-rope there. All of the descriptions of Wintergreen routes I've found say they are TRAD or sport. Are there any routes you know of that are suitable for top-roping, and if so, can you tell me directions? Many thanks, in advance!

Thanks Ronbo. In case others are wondering Ronbo's PM discouraged top roping because of the accessibility of the tops of the cliffs. Also, since Wintergreen is private property, he advised caution, but as we are guests and staying in the resort, I believe our use of the property would be permitted. We will do our top roping at Raven's Roost off the blueridge parkway instead. I've been there and it's is easy set top rope anchors there, and is quite close to Wintergreen.
