South side crags access issue. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is a great area for routes of all grades, many being fairly moderate. This area is becoming increasingly popular and there are many developed lines that are not described in the Williams Guide.

In general, this area goes into the shade in the early afternoon, however, when the leaves are on the trees, most of the routes stay fairly shaded for the entire day.


Getting There 

Follow the Propp's Ridge Road approach for all of the South Side Meadow Crags. At the point where you turn left on to the railroad grade continue for .3 miles to a campsite area on the right. Continue down the road for another .5 miles and park at the 2nd logging road that heads up left. You'll have to drive through 2 large puddles. There are several places to park here, just keep your vehicle off the road and try to park in a manner that maximizes parking for others. Follow the approach trail for a few minutes to reach the cliff. The approach trail puts you at the base of Arresting Start to a Noble Finish, 5.12c on the White Wall.

This area is also easily approached from Area 51 by walking along a faint trail for about 10 minutes.

Tiggers and Airplanes 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : The Other Place
Start with a few bouldery moves to gain the vertical face and climb to the roof. At the 3rd bolt, head up and left, aiming for the obvious flake system that leads to a break in the roof (crux). Gain somewhat of a stance at the roof break and continue up and left to make the final clip above the overhang. The moves in the roof are really fun. Lots of heel hooking! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV

It has been almost 10 years since I was last climbing in this area. I am curious; I see no mention of the climb "Arresting Start to a No Bull Finish". Mark and I put up that climb years ago. [EDIT: it is possible that the name has been retained but that the climb has not been posted]

It appears that many of the climbs are not correctly named- when developing this area we [Lee, Mark, Mike, and I among others [Gene and Kenny] had different names, for the most part, than what's listed, if my memory serves me..]). Of course, again, I heard mention that a lot of new development went on and, so, perhaps they have not been posted here.

at the end of the other place, there is one trad and two sport slabs according to the William's guidebook. the left most sport is 'yikes', 5.8, what are the names and ratings of the other two? we climbed the rightmost one, it felt like a 5.9.
