Featured Route For Coopers Rock State Forest
The heady upper section of Electric Avenue

Electric Avenue V4- 6B PG13  WV : Coopers Rock State Forest : ... : Electric Avenue Boulder
Classic! A very tall line that follows a beautiful crack up the imposing face of the Electric Avenue boulder. Stand start on some juggy sidepulls in the crack and work your way up until the crack ends. Make a tough transition (crux) into the adjacent crack to the right at about 15' and follow the sweet finger crack to the top...just don't blow it here!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
