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.
This climb looks like it is just a tall climb from the ground. However, when you get on this bad-boy you quickly find out that there is a heinous crux between the second and third bolt. Fortunately you have a sweet no-hands rest (if you can battle away the spiders) in a pod at an obvious spot above the 3rd bolt. Pumpy climbing continues above on undercling with long reaches between sloping edges with bad feet. Finally keep your head, fight the pump and work over the last bulge.
The easiest way to do it is by going down Honeymooners Ladders and hiking 5 minutes along the cliff eastwards.
