The furthest down the road of the main areas at Coopers. A bit more crowded than Tilted Tree or Roadside, especially with non-climber tourist hikers, who love to ask you questions.

Getting There 

Drive to the end of the road, to where there is a concessionaire stand and a turnaround/parking area. Hike to the left of the building, staying to the right of the main overlook trails. Shortly, you will see an obvious break through a cliffline, which has some slab steps set into it. This will take you down to the Rattlesnake Trail, which runs along most of the great bouldering areas here.

Classic combination of slopers, heelhooks, with a sketchy mantle finish. Sometimes wet in the summer, and incredibly conditions-dependent, but still one of the best lines at Coopers. Most consider it a sandbag at v5, but once you get the beta wired, it doesn't feel too bad....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
