Location: WV : The New River Gorge : New River Gorge Proper : Bridge Area : First Strike Area : Dark Hollow (5.8)

Comments: While not a classic climb, this is definitely a hidden gem and guaranteed to have no line. A good climb for the budding 5.8 trad leader.

The tree above this climb has toppled, but there is a 2 bolt anchor for the climb on the left that is easily reached (just make sure to put a directional).

Comments: The steep road down the hill to the Sore Heel parking area is in pretty bad shape, and cars without high clearance will have trouble going down (or back up). According to the RRGCC the Sore Heel hill is "no longer sustainable and will not be maintained going forward" (see the RRGCC FAQ).

However, they have just put in a new parking area that is a nice flat walk to the sore heel parking. See the RRGCC blog post ... more >>

Comments: A nice line! The trees on either side of this crack (left and right) can be used to descend.

Comments: FYI you cannot rappel from the top of this route (the bolts do not have rings). The walk off is uphill, then straight back to the main trail (there are some climber access signs). Turn right and follow that trail around until you get back to the base of Discovery wall.

Also, don't bother taking gear beyond the very start; there is no gear after the bolts start (and they are fairly far apart).


Location: WV : The New River Gorge : Meadow River Gorge : Lower Meadow : Moon Wall : Winter Harvest (5.10c)

Comments: A really nice route but definitely sandbagged.

Though it's possible to traverse right under the roof, it's probably easier (and safer) to climb into the dihedral and make a really thin traverse left *after* clipping the bolt on the face.


Location: WV : Seneca Rocks : Southern Pillar : Judgement Seat (5.10a)

Comments: This is an awesome climb! It is possible to climb all the way to the anchors of Roy Gap Chimneys (P2) in one long pitch if you are careful about rope drag.

A little more description of the route: After the stemming/undercling start, you head up and left into a triangular alcove with a steep crack just above it (there is some fixed gear here). Climb the crack and pull a small roof into a really cool dihedral. Keep climbing up and left to a bolted belay just below the smooth roof.

Comments: The second and third pitches are often skipped but are truly worthwhile! Early in the day is probably better to avoid getting rappelled on.

Comments: Definitely an under-rated route, it has some really cool moves!

I believe the location listed here is incorrect, there are several bolted lines on the face and this is not the first. This route is directly left of Ridin' the Short Buzz.
