Boy Scout Ledge is a short, wall sliced by vertical and horizontal cracks with a prominent pointed roof sticking out the right side. While most climbs are on the easy to moderate side, this area hosts one of the hardest rated aid climbs; Spiderman's Route (a.k.a. The Prow).

This is a good area to take newbies. You will often find groups here. Anchors consist of trees and boulders, however the Prow can accept medium size gear.

Getting There 

Follow the green trail up past Middle Earth and up to the stairs. where the trail (stairs) turn to the left, take a look off into the woods a short distance, you can't miss the cliff.
