Description

This is a pure splitter crack with great pro the entire way, with a few bolts thrown in. Bring some draws and some hand and finger-sized pieces and climb it.  

HISTORY: Doug Reed apparently did this as a gear climb, but decided to bolt it due to less-than-stellar rock at the first of the route, which he believed might turn some people off of the route.  True, it does not look like much from the ground until you turn the flakey roof onto the beautiful splitter.  Here at the New River Gorge, we respect the wishes of the FA more than rigid trad versus sport ideologies.  Leave your debates at the Gunks or in NC!

Protection

Pro is mixed; 7 bolts but bring a single set of cams as well. Bolted anchor.
