- 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?
Begin with a difficult boulder problem involving a couple of long moves between a blocky jug and a few sculpted crimpers. Cruiser terrain leads to a ledge rest at the third bolt. Thuggy climbing through the black rock of the roof ends with a cruxy lip encounter to establish on the face.
Rest up while you stare down a perplexingly blank section. After unlocking some "a-ha!" beta, finagle your way to your second no-hands rest of the route. Keep your guard up, however; a final crux awaits on the dirty slab just before the anchors, involving a balancey sequence on sloping pockets.
Varied, cool climbing up a proud feature.
