Description 

Well... this place is where Burkes Garden really shines. I'm a boulderer, but this cliff line is honestly astounding. It makes me want to take up bolting or trad climbing... Almost.

Truly though, these 40-60ft bullet cliffs housing huge roofs, awesome features, and beautiful routes, should be developed. Likewise there are multiple nice looking boulders, but geeze, these cliffs are amazing.

Come develop! But please post here or message me so I can update. Exciting stuff!

Getting There 

Torward Walker Gap (and Chestnut Shelter) on the A.T.
