Access issues inherited from Summersville Lake

With the exception of the Main Area (not Pirate Cove!) all crags at Summersville Lake are impacted by the water level. During the summer months till about October the level is too high to access many other areas (unless for DWS). Check the website of the Army Corps of Engineers for the current water level. Once it is below 1600 feet, most areas are accessible for climbing. The crags below the dam are obviously not impacted by the lake water level.

Leftmost route, climb onto the ledge above the lake to a high first bolt and then straight up. Head left around the bulge at bolt 4/5 for easier climbing, staright up is considered 5.12c.

Same start as Surfer Rosa, go right at 2nd bolt

Climb The Pod and continue right at the last bolt.
