About Bradley Falls:

Rocks are near the falls. Honestly, the quality is shitty. The rock is hard granite, but it's dirty and usually wet. If you live near Bradley, definitely check it out, but don't drive too far just to climb. There are some cleaner rock to the far left of the falls. The hike in and the falls on the other hand are awesome. I'm not too sure about the owner's view on climbing here. As far as I know, UNC-Asheville owns the property. No camping or biking. Trash has become a big problem here. Please practice no trace, and if possible, please take one extra piece of trash out with you as you leave.
Nearest town or city: Saluda
Directions: Take the Saluda exit from I-26 and head North down a windy country road. The road will change at one point. It used to become gravel, but it has been paved. Anyway, after a rather steep decline, you will come to an area where there is a little parking area on the left. Park here and follow the trail on the same side of the road as where you parked. There are trails on the other side too, but Bradley Falls is to the left of the road as you come in.
