Start standing with both hands matched on the bottom part of the crescent rail. Follow the arching rail upwards to a long move to a good hold at the lip.

Fun movement and friendly holds on flawless rock. Definitely worth checking out if you're in the area.


When facing the UMWA boulder, turn 180 degrees and look across the road. This boulder can be seen fairly clearly through the trees located uphill and to the left of the obvious electric/telephone pole. (It's about 30-40 yards or so uphill of the telephone pole.)


A couple of pads are nice as the landing is somewhat uneven.

I found this line when exploring in the UMWA/Small One area. It's clearly been climbed before and I thought it was pretty enjoyable, so I wanted to share it. Definitely worth the very short walk if you're already in the area.

If anyone has a different name for this boulder, let me know and I'll happily change it.
