Access Issue: Read Access Details! Details
Access. Nelson Rocks used to operate under the name Nelson Rocks Preserve, which was ran by the Hammett's until a few years ago, upon which time it was bought by Camp Horizons in Harrisonburg Virginia. Therefore, as of right now, until access issues are figured out, Nelson Rocks Outdoor center, is technically closed to unguided climbing, currently we are working out access issues for the area, and i will update them as i am informed.
Start on the largest corner on the crescendo ledge, with the small tree at the base of it, pro is good, get creative with using the entire flake, watch for poor rock quality near the fixed pin. Belay at anchors on the first pitch or fire through and link them(be ready for some hellacious rope drag, as well as communication problems) Second pitch is a lot easier. Anchors at both. Easier to traverse right out Buttpucker Traverse to get to the anchors on top of crescendo than to rappel down Moderato. Rap from Crescendo can be done in a single rap with a 60m rope, tho it is a rope stretcher.
