This place is beautiful. It offers endless views, cool mornings and afternoons, a near constant breeze, and boulders to satisfy any taste. There are steep faces and slabs, lowballs and some of the highest concentration of thrilling highballs in the park.
Hike up from the parking and get onto the Appalachian Trail headed Northbound toward the Horizon Area. Pass the Horizon Area which has the Horizon Boulder, the BSTRW, and the Highland Highball. Stay on the AT for maybe 5 min, passing several smaller boulders and exposed rocks. Look towards your left for a large protrusion of rock and on its backside is a huge overhung face which is the Sunset Boulder, and behind it are the Lava Boulder, Massie Boulder, and Wilburn Waters Boulder.
