Description 

Stays cool until 2ish on those HOT summer days. It is in the shade until then(for the most part). However, some of the taller routes will have sun on the top so be prepared for sweaty hands clipping the anchors.

I personally love this area as I am in the NRG mainly in the summer. No Crowds, No Bugs, Breezy, Quiet.

And some classic lines.


Getting There 

From Fern Point Ladders, head east until you reach a large cirque, then you have arrived.

Featured Route For Fern Cirque

Hooked on Bionics 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Fern Cirque
This is a short but powerful climb. Light for a 5.11d in my opinion. Climb the vertical face with a tricky move. Angle slightly up and left as the wall gets steeper. Around the 3rd bolt is a reachy move to an awesome jug. Good route for someone breaking into this grade. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
