Access Issue: NO DRONES ON NATIONAL PARKLANDS Details
All of the crags within the New River Gorge proper are on national parklands, and drone use is prohibited here. There has been some discussion about places to launch drones that are not on park property, and then flying them over the gorge. This is super poor form; don't do it. Park regulations prohibit all drone use over the boundaries without a permit.
This small wall has four sport routes, Pyro Vixen being the best. All of them are decent, but none are really classic. However, they're good for moderate climbing. The right-most route is Gimp Verde, then Mo'Verde, followed by Ichabod Crane and Pyro Vixen on the far left (on the arete).
Between Little Head Wall and Head Wall. Park at the main Bubba City parking area and hike out the Canyon Rim Trail and come down the second access gully. Hike downstream, climber's left, along the cliff past the overhanging French Wall and the large roof of Great White Shark. Continue over a little hill to a breakdown in the wall. You're now facing Headless Wall, the right side of a small upstream-facing wall with four routes.
