- 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?
Scramble up the choss to the first series of crimps on the clean gray wall. Choose your best sequence through this initial bouldery section and rest up at the huge halfway jug.
A tricky sequence involving some more sharp edges gives way to a strange undercling rail. Once established on the black rock headwall, cruise the remaining patina flakes and easy slab moves to the anchor.
A fun addition to the wall. Might want to wait for good, crisp conditions on this one - the edges have some bite to them.
