About Piedmont:

Directions: Take 28st Avenue West up the hill and get on Skyline traveling west. Go down the road until you reach a large overlook on the left hand side. Park here. From the overlook/parking lot, follow the obvious trail up and over the rocky hill. As the trail heads back down the hill look for a more faint trail leading off and left. Go about 50 yards, you'll reach a cliff band... you're there. Crag in Brief: Walking over the big hill on the cliff's approach leaves most of the city sounds behind. Piedmont's seclusion is enough that you can forget you're still in town. The rock here holds together better than most of the stuff along West Skyline and the problems are pretty unique. Its only drawback is that with little exposure to the sun, the wall is slow to dry after rain or snow.
