- DO NOT park past the sign near the bridge. It indicates something like "no parking to the right," but actually means "no parking past this sign" (thanks DOT). This is to keep access open for emergency 4x4s that may need to descend to gorge for rescues.
-Park completely off the pavement, preferably diagonally, with vehicle rears facing away from the road. I've seen a couple cars actually back out into the highway as they exit the parking. This is stupid and dangerous.
-consider using the large gravel parking lot just off the Underwood Rd. Seriously, it only adds an extra 5 minutes of walking. You came to the Meadow for those closely bolted easy climbs that the NRG lacks, so pay your dues and walk a little, goober. Seriously, you take an extra five minutes to set up your hammock at the crag anyway, it's not a huge deal.
Local climbers and boaters have been getting increasingly irate about bad/excessive parking off of 19. If it keeps as it has been going, the likely outcome will be a simple ban on parking, with no other alternatives. Let's try to self-regulate, m'kay?
Climb gingerly up the chossy but easy face. Minor difficulties are encountered transitioning into the roof, but soon you'll be treated to a couple of plate jugs and great heel hooks.
After a long move to a brick hold, the short-lived crux begins, involving a huge move to a half-pad crimp rail. A hand-foot match allows you to match your hands up in preparation for a final lunge into a jug. A few more moves of glory campusing along buckets bring you to the end of the roof, and a vegetated bit of vertical 5.easy leads to the anchors.
