The Headwall is the main, huge chunk of rock ranging 40-100 feet tall. Bolting is in progress for the very, steep, hard lines here. There are currently a handful of bolted routes here ranging from 5.7-5.13. Though, only two were put up by us so far.

Getting There 

From Jefferson, take 77 towards the Tarryall Reservoir. Go past reservoir, and at the Bordenville Cemetery, take a left onto Forest Rd. 844. Low riding vehicles use caution. After about a mile, the road forks. Stay left, and climb the little hill into the Cro Magnon Campground.
