Le Futuriste 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Fern Point
This thing is another classic endless wall arĂȘte climb. Start on the roof and make some moves up utilizing some sharp crimps and smeary feet. At the second bolt decide to either dyno or put a foot at your chest and stand up. Once out on the arĂȘte make use of the holds and work your up to an interesting 3 crimp/jug hold. There is a semi-difficult clip mixed somewhere in with all of this. End this beauty with one more long reach or two up and right and you are in easy terrain....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
