About West Nile:

From the nature center take the river or prairie trail Northish, eventually coming to a service road; if you are on the river trail it will simply turn into the road, if you take the prairie trails you will need to head right on the road when you reach it. Approximately at the point where the service road turns from dirt to gravel (from river trail) or from gravel to dirt (from prairie trails) head towards the river (Northish) across a marshy prairie parcel with crumbly rock around it's perimeter. Towards the right side of the prairie (East) where the crumbly ridge deteriorates keep going towards the river skirting the backside of the crumbly ridge and heading Westish, this is where the climbing is. The West Nile area is the small Westernmost wall as you hike along the river past some overhanging and crumbly looking rock. CAUTION! - much of the possible routes here have yet to be climbed and are potentially very loose and dangerous.
