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.

Crank the first thin crux to gain a rest on some jugs below the first roof. After a nice shake, crank up to the glued on (but original) hold to gain match on a big sloper.
