A small but quality climbing area just outside of the "no climbing" boundary near the overlook. It features a nice leadable flake and a few toprope climbs.

Getting There 

Located just uphill from Haystack Rock and Motorcycle Rocks. Take the Underlook Trail towards the base of the main overlook and take an unnamed trail to the left towards Haystack Rock. Continue on trails to the left without going too far downhill and you will see a small cliff facing the river.

Climbing Season

For the Coopers Rock State Forest area.

Layback the flake to gain the ledge. Make a few more moves and build a nice gear nest in a horizontal. Climb the easy unprotected 10' of slab to the top. Can easily be set up on toprope from tree anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
