Access Issue: Writing in chalk Details

Description

Enjoy the sun and the water at your back. Orange Oswald is a wonderful place to come and spend a day climbing 5.10.  Winter climbing can be good here as long as the temp isn't too low, and it isn't windy.  Gets sun almost all day.

Getting There

From the ladder, follow the trail to climber's right.  Once you get to the rocky beach with chalked up 5.10 routes, you're there.

First Trip to the New River gorge area. Great rock, consistent routes, and we didn't see another soul the 2 days we were there. Perfect way to bring in the New Year. Jan 9, 2015

Anyone have information on the new routes on the left side of the wall? Climbed one that was marked 5.10b directly left of Fabulous groupies this past weekend, definitely needs some cleaning. Sep 8, 2016

A few new routes were developed there some time over the summer I believe. That's why they're still "rough" in comparison to neighboring routes. Look for them in the next volume of the NRG guidebook. With all new routes most people don't know much about them until they are published, so be safe, have fun, and use your own judgement. Sep 9, 2016
