That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Not Cloudsplitter, this is much further west. I can provide one final clue since this one is a bit difficult to tell due to the angle.

Here's a photo looking down the climb:

Turtleback Arch ridge area?

No, but it looks very similar to that climb. This unofficial trail is North of Route 77. That should be a good indicator of where this is located @ around 1150ft elevation.

No, not in the Adena area. Since this one has been slightly difficult and to keep moving along, I will reveal and pass off to Mark for his valiant effort.

This is above the Martin's Fork Trailhead, on the Raven's Rock Overlook trail. This is one of the last scrambles before gaining access to the ridgetop. It's pretty precarious going down, that's for sure. A lot steeper than it looks in the second photo.

I'll pass the turn on to whoever is quickest on the draw . . . I don't really feel like I earned the turn given my numerous and inaccurate guesses : )

After heavy rains, this stream intermittently runs through this arch (of sorts).  Because of the karst formations it's usually dry, with the water flowing beneath the creek bed, and surfacing a bit farther downstream.  Before the official trail was rerouted a year or so ago, you used to pass right by this feature.  Can you name the stream?

Close, kymyers, this along the Whittleton Branch trail (before the reroute) about 100 yards before the turn off onto Whittleton Arch Trail.

I'm only aware of Whittleton Branch that runs through the area. I know there are 3-4 smaller tributaries, but I have never known them to have names nor seen a map with their identified names.

Perhaps a little help or a new photo? This has been dead for several weeks and I would appreciate to keep the post moving along.

Sorry for any confusion.

The location is as I said above: "Close, kymyers, this is along the Whittleton Branch trail (before the reroute) about 100 yards before the turn off onto Whittleton Arch Trail."

So, kymyers is nearly correct, or may have meant the location I stated.  If kymyers doesn't want to post, then anyone can.

LOL I didn't know of any other branch in that other but Granny, but I sure didn't think Granny comes close enough to Whittleton to be the answer.  Of course, with all the off trail hiking you guys do one never really knows.

I'll post a picture to keep this moving:
