Sticking the big deadpoint at the 3rd bolt.

Description 

This wall is home to several New River Gorge classic sport climbs. Most of this wall collects lots of sunshine, so avoid it during the warmer times of year.

Getting There 

From the Honeymooners ladders head upstream, drop down in front of the boulder that has a couple of three bolt routes that look craptacular and up to the base of The Classic 11's Discombobulated and Legacy.

Nearing the crux. Summer, 2003.

S.T.A.N.C. 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Snake Buttress
An intimidating climb inside an orange corner. It is easier than it looks though. The crux is a diagonal off-width traverse under the roof. This route doesn't get much traffic so you might first want to rap and clean it up from huge spiders....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
