The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

I'm looking for info regarding backcountry camping in the DBNF London District, preferably near Buck Creek.  Bee Rock and Rockcastle Campgrounds are both closed and we'd prefer to camp more primitively. Little Lick is small and best suited for horses.
Suggestions?

The cliff lines whisper "I have secrets to share".  But sometimes they lie!! :D

that's a long ole fall. I read recently a report by a guy that fell 40 feet at the Motherlode some years ago. He admitted he was lax in his safety steps and personal policies... got complacent. Not enough fear, basically. Every climber should read his report.
