About Old Bridge Memphis:

Under the old bridge that crosses into Arkansas from Memphis are several bolted routes. Climbers cannot climb the routes on the railroad track pilons, but they can climb the ones under the road bridge.
Nearest town or city: Memphis
Directions: From Memphis, take old bridge (55) towards Arkansas. Get off at the first (or second?) exit in Arkansas and take the exit ramp down under the bridge. Park your car on the grass before the bridge, and walk towards the third and fourth granite pilons. There are two bolted routes (probably a 5.11a) and a couple great bouldering problems. Bring a crash pad because people have been known to find drug needles near the pilons.
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: Access road under the bridge. Don't park in front of the routes. Park before the pilons as to not attract attention.
Camping: No
When to Climb: Summer
Quantity of Climbs: Day
