Chunko Goes Bowling

W Virginia > New River Gorge > Summersville &… > Summersville La… > Orange Oswald Wall
Fun warm-up route for the rest of the wall. Well bolted with a great rest about 1/3 of the way up. The pump surprises you as you climb and you finish with a great view of the lake behind you.
Starts at flake. Two lines to the left of Orange Oswald.
8 bolts to anchors.

Hardest damn 5.9 sport climb I've ever been on. Really pumpy for the grade.

Outrageously hard for a 5.9. Pumpy, slippery, and reachy all the way up. There are 10c/d's at the New that are easier. It's a fun climb if you don't let yourself get hung up on the grade.

Not sure if I would agree about the "Well Bolted" part in the description. Falling in the crux section (esp blowing the clip) could send someone on the ledge.
I felt some of the 10a on the wall were easier.
