A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

Summary:
JFMAMJJASOND
seasonality
Mostly Trad

Long/Lat: -85.416133, 35.071168

Unique Features And Strengths:

Crack climbing.

Description:

Crack climbing heaven! Is this the Indian Creek of the East? Well maybe not, but bring your tape because this is almost exclusively sustained crack climbing.

Access Issues:

Beware of theft from carpark and campsite. There is camping, but it is primitive, no toilets, shower water.

Approach:

About a 20-30 min walk up a moderate incline to the base of the cliffs. Once you hit the waterfall at the cliffline the climbs start straight away.

Ethic:

Primarily trad with good quality bolts for belays. Some of the harder (5.11 + ) climbs are bolted.

Start 10ft right of Platic Toys / Wild Hair. Climb a corner to a small roof. Continue up a crack and another roof to the top.

5.10bTrad 80ft
25 * March Hare

Ascend the sweet finger crack up to the roof section. Hurly underclings then pop yourself out onto the face. Very fun but physical move. The only downside to this climb is that it is not sustained, but think of the easy romp to the top as a reward for all your hard work pulling the roof!!! The top section can be done on all passive gear.

Great climb that starts with a challenging highball fingerlocking boulder problem - although it can be protected. The variation of jams, lie backs and face footers makes the top a great climb. Easy to protect with generally clean falls.
