Halfway up, shot really puts it in perspective.


Some pretty fun slab climbing exists here, it is a bit east of Fern Point Cirque and most climbers don't make the trek, but it is well worth it.

The Upheaval if the absolute classic on this wall.

Getting There 

Continue East of Fern Point Cirque, it is the first slab you'll hit.

Fool Effect 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Kaymoor Slabs
This is a great long sport route, probably one of the longest single pitch sport routes at the New, and it's only 5.9! The lower portion is the crux. Climb the face straight up to reach a short flake system. Follow this to the end and continue over small overhangs to the finish. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV

This is a great area for people looking for some easy sport on the Endless Wall. Fool Effect (5.9), The Upheaval (5.9), and Little Help From My Friends (5.10a) are all great moderate sport lines.
