BETA PHOTO: 4. New River Gorge Homesick Blues, 9+.
5. The Viru...
This wide crack is right of the Big Dihedral and left of The Virus. Climb up to a "cave" and then exit with some precarious "looking" moves. This climb has some fun finger jams and stems. At the top, you can traverse right and use the bolt anchors on The Virus. It is #6 in the topo =>
Bring pro to 2" and several slings. No fixed anchor. Hubbel's said 4", but I never used it.
Thick and Crusty Mmmm....
Stemming the crust.

Isn't the photo with this route meant for Lemons, Limes and Tangerines?

Yes, but the Beta photo is right. Does anybody else think the rating is too high? Killian's Dead (5.6) seemed harder.

No. 6 in the beta photo. Things get better upon exiting the "cave". Not a great climb, but not bad either.
