Backpacking is open to everyone but TRAD rock climbing is limited only to 4 experience trad climbers, no exceptions here. I think is time to finally do it, since 2009 I have go to the area where this rocks is located, every time I get there I say to my self...I want to climb that rock, is not that hight from it base, provably not more than 30 feet. I can see more than 4 routes asking to be scale, the approach is about 2.5 miles with a kind of steep access and a knee deep creek crossing, it has an awesome camping spot at the top and the views have not parallel. We definitely must carry camping and climbing gear all the way so a whole weekend will be great and bring your swimming suite. Lets make it a party of four climbers plus a photographer and anyone willing to go backpacking is more than welcome Did you say...me, me, me, pick me, please?? The plan: Leave DC area if Friday, is a 3hr drive from DC area and about 2 hr approach, I will like to be at the camping area just when day light fade out if not we will still backpack with headlamps on, Saturday walk to the climbing spot which 15 minutes away from the camping area, climb as most as we can, later on break cam and move to another un-disclose location and set our last camping spot for Saturday night, this will be another 2 miles hike, Sunday morning go creek sliding and swimming for a bit before we break camp and star moving back to our parking lot, about maybe 4pm we will star heading back home. Where are we goin: Lion's Head area- Dolly Sods - WV. More details coming soon
