The Other Place Rock Climbing
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.
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.

Start on a low overhang and climb up and left making bouldery moves to gain a stance. Continue straight up to clip the 3rd bolt. Make a dyno to a horizontal (crux) off of some crimps. From here, head left to reach the arete. Climb the arete on the right side, passing the 4th bolt to reach the shuts. Beautiful and powerful climbing for such a short route! ...[more] Browse More Classics in WV
