Rods'n'Guns Wall Rock Climbing
As of 2012, this is the reason for climbers to come here. With its >1 hr. approach, don't expect crowds. If you arrive in the autumn, you won't be alone, however: a stone's throw from the cliffs lies private property, all of it hunting clubs, whose members gleefully ply the woods below for game. Bright colors are strongly recommended during hunting season.
Though short, the cliff boasts a lot of excellent climbing, most of it both pumpy and technical. Solid leading at mid- to hard 5.10 level is the sweet spot, although most of these routes can be TR'd with the help of a long static line or extra rope.
Follow the herd path described for West Mtn. Ridge all the way to this southernmost cliff.
