Great sandstone bouldering at the base of Hawk's Nest Dam. NRG is an amazing sport climbing area, so this place does not get as much attention. There are some boulders on the walk up to the dam, but the main area is right at the base of the dam.
Take the Mountaineer expressway (US-19) towards Fayetteville. At Fayetteville, take state road 16 North, following signs towards Hawk's Nest Dam for 7/8 miles. Once you cross a large bridge, there is a parking area on the right. Hike .7 miles following signs for Hawk's Nest Dam.
