- 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?
Start in a shallow dihedral in an obvious weakness. Traverse right about 20 feet in a good horizontal to a stance before a blank section. A cool balance move gets you across the blankness with a small pocket. The book says "it's crucial to have a TCU with a narrow head to fit the pocket". Goat climb past a bolt to a large sloping ledge. Then climb past 3 closely spaced bolts on smaller edges and tougher moves to anchors below the large roof.
20 feet right of the small cave past Meadowbolic and Velocacrimper. Starts in a small dihedral.
