Description Suggest change

Most instant satisfaction crags in the New River Gorge. Also, this area was among the first developed by early New River Gorge climbers. Many Climbers planning a day out will start off meeting here, then make plans.

Some great rainy day routes can be found here as the all of the crags have a southern aspect.

Getting There Suggest change

Park at obvious pullout under the New River Gorge Bridge (heading north on rt 19 take three rights after crossing Bridge)
