About The Narrows:

The Narrows is a small canyon that seems to have lots of potential for climbing. It has several hundred yards of cliff face and multiple large boulders. The canyon has a road that runs down the middle of it with pull offs on either side. It seems like a place that has plenty of potential for future climbing.
Nearest town or city: Birmingham
Directions: 280 Canyon is located just southeast of Birmingham on HWY 280. Turn south on Dunnavant Valley Road, look left and you will see the canyon. Park on the side of the road and hike up the short hill on either side of the road to the rock.
Latitude, Longitude: 33.36656, -86.66170
Access Issues: For a good deal of the climbs in the valley you have to cross the creek that runs alongside the road, there is no bridge but there is a small empty lot across from the house nearest the climbing, there is (or use to be) a hardly noticeable trail on one side (the left looking at it from the road) and its a very brief walk to some close together rocks that run all the way across the creek, of course the hard part from there is getting up stream to better routes. Now Embark on your adventure!
