About Fight Rock:

Fight Rock is the enormous boulder that partially overhangs the highway in the heart of the 221 Circuit. Legend has it that in the early '90s Doug Reed, Porter Jarrard, and a whole crew of rowdy ruffians witnessed and participated in a huge brawl between rednecks, bikers, and other assorted misfits. The bonfire-lit fight was memorable, but more memorable still was Doug Reed's subsequent solo of the prominent crack on the backside of the boulder that exits through a short and steep roof at 35 feet with only a dirty old mattress to cover the broken glass far below the final move crux.
