I recently stumbled across Hanging Rocks (not to be confused with Hanging Rock) while driving through NE WV. It's located in/near Romney, WV. It has 3 bands of cliff as much as 300ft tall. I drove right under the clifff bands and at a glance it looks like some good climbing.

However, I can't seem to find any reference to anybody climbing it. Has anyone here ever climbed at Hanging Rocks or know of anyone doing so? I'd like to explore but am not sure about access/ownership. If you know anything about this place, please let me know.

Hit up the county court house and check the tax maps. Should give you a starting point for access.

I never had any luck on finding anything regarding its climbing history. The rock is softer and chossier than it first appears. I did find some old, rusted cold shut anchors. If you find any useful info, please share. The ease of approach is ridiculous.
