Burkes Garden Roof Rock Climbing
Burkes Garden Roof (BGR) is a nicely featured 12ft roof just off of the side of the trail, northbound, from Walker Gap on the AT. Lots of problems and fun moves!
Head northbound from the parking lot on the AT (opposite direction/side of the road as the southbound trail sign taking you toward Walker Gap). Walk a good distance (less than 10min) and this will be 30ft to the right of the trail.

Sit start as per "Zen Garden" but reach directly up (dont trend left through jugs out of the left roof) to the nice loaf with two sculpted crimps in it. Move up again to the Hueco pocket, and then break right through crimps in the steep roof. Using the shelf feet, link into duel crimps and climb into the finish of "Burkes Garden Roof"....[more] Browse More Classics in Virginia
