Description 

If you walk up the trail and get onto the trail on the right side of the creek, you will eventually (very shortly in fact) come to the unmistakable Cascades Slab...

The Cascades Slab is directly beside the trail. So close in fact, that the trail curves around the slab and the adjacent boulder to the left of the trail... You have to pad the concrete trail when climbing the slab lines.

These problems are fun for climbers at any ability level and if youre in the area I recommend checking them out for sure.

Getting There 

Walk up the trail. Get over onto the trail on the right side of the creek. You'll find it I promise.

Trailside Slabs: Left/Mid/Right V2 5+  Virginia : Southwest Virginia Region : ... : Trailside Slab
There are three lines here but I figure since they are so similar and straightforward I would list them all collectively:-Slab Left: Be sure to pad the trail! Stand start and climb the slab-Slab Mid: Same... pad trail and climb the middle of the slab face.-Slab Right: I think this is a bit harder maybe... V3ish? Better landing too....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
