ROCK CLIMBING
Summersville Lake has become internationally
famous over the past few years for the enormous
number of vertical cliffs available to rock climb or
rappel. With over 2,800 acres of water and 60 miles
of shoreline, much of its shore is lined with towering
rock cliffs and boulders, which offer breathtaking
scenery and some of the most accessible, and yet
challenging, rock climbing and rappelling in the
United States. The rock at Summersville Lake is
composed of Nuttall Sandstone. The sandstone cliffs
range from 30-80 feet in height, and the walls range
from slightly overhanging to extremely overhanging.
The cliffs offer enjoyable face climbs and overhanging routes with horizontal edges, pockets and jugs.
With over 100 different climbs, climbing and bouldering are popular among visitors. Rats Hole, Pirate's
Cove, Long Point and Whippoorwill are some favorite spots among climbers. For those who boulder,
in the fall and spring, water levels recede and expose
many boulders such as those in Pirates Cove.
