Jones Gap State Park is lesser known for its climbing, but there are some great bouldering problems within its boundaries. If you’re located in Charleston and looking to take a climbing trip, travel up to Hendersonville and make your way to the park. Climbing can be found about half a mile down the Standington Mountain trail. Keep in mind this park is not loaded with tons of different routes to climb, but the boulders that are available are awesome, and well worth the trip. 

Camping is available within the park, as well as fishing, hiking, and kayaking, so if you flash every problem in one day, there are plenty of other activities to indulge in. Be sure and get your camping permit from the ranger station, and remember to pack out everything you bring in. Jones Gap is a beautiful place and a hidden gem for climbers.
