The second classic area up Crab Orchard Hollow. Good Moderate trad routes and decent shade, unusual for the Guest. This area is very easily identifiable by the enormous "block head" capping the wall.

Getting There 

Take a left a few hundred yards up the crab orchard trail (about 1.25 miles in from the main parking lot, before the second small bridge).

Climbing Season

For the Southwest Virginia Region area.

Weather station 8.5 miles from here
