Description 

Area to the west of Bridge Buttress. This area sees little action but only because of its slow drying time, and "long" walk in (10 min)
You should plan on carrying a spider wand up each climb with you in this area.
There are tons of fun corners and flake systems that range in height from 30-75 ft. Most of the ratings are from 5.7-5.10d

Getting There 

Same as for bridge buttress, but continue west on trails just above the road.

Having fun on Maranatha

Maranatha 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Maranatha Area
This route starts with a bouldery finger-crack, but once you get off the ground, eases up substantially until the upper crux. Pull the low-roof, then up to a hueco, move right until you gain the finger-crack that runs to the top. The crux is a short section near the top, where the crack tapers out and a few thin moves are rewarded by a solid hand-jam....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
