This area has been increasing in popularity over the last few years. Many of the routes have benefited from increased traffic. Most of the routes tend to be shorter than others at the Meadow, but there are many high quality sport, mixed, and trad lines here. Also, there's a concentration of 5.11 sport climbs of good quality here. If you're a solid trad climber, Artz vs. Parker, 5.12a is not to be missed!

Getting There 

The approach for this area is the same for the Main Meadow Area (Tan Wall, Toxic Hueco Area, and Puppy Chow Area). Continue on the ATV trail past the Main Meadow Area, heading down toward the river. At the bottom near the river, locate an ATV trail that heads uphill to the right. Follow this for a few minutes until the trail comes to a cliff. At the point when the cliff is on the right side of the trail, locate a path along the base of the cliff that heads to the right.

Yep, after the first series of moves, The Jungle Book might come to mind.Stick clip, surmount roof, and move right to rest (you'll need it). Here, you can reflect and strategize. Up, tip-toe left, and proceed using a full repertoire of edges, sidepulls, and a pocket (or two). Slopers await those who advance directly to anchors. (The blunt arete to the left is also an option.)A great route! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
