Description 

Secluded, steep, and out of the sun. Walk up the little pony path and into the "Alcove". The climbing here is fun and you'll no doubt be all by yourself.

Getting There 

This is a boulder face that is out in the grassy gap, lifted up, and surrounded and secluded in some rhododendrons. This can be tricky to get to but it is pretty easy to see.

Look for the uplifted bulge in the grassy gap closer to the second peak which is "Rhodo Peak" from the rest of Feral Peak.

Climbing Season

For the Grayson Highlands State Park area.

Weather station 6.8 miles from here
