Michelin Man 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Ames Wall
Definitely the best route on the wall, and one of the best of the grade at Bubba City!Start with several big moves on small slopers/crimps, which lead to an overhanging section with good holds. Score a great double-handjam rest, pull an awesome move to a good pocket, and head left at the 6th bolt for the 11d finish (the right bolt line is harder). Finish on very cool white rock....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
