Access Issue: Writing in chalk Details

Description [Suggest Change]

Climb the left leaning broken crack system past some bulges and horizontals to the top. The top sections can be a bit dirty. Some of the moves can be a bit pumpy if you don't see the sequence.

Location [Suggest Change]

From the main Bridge Area, walk downstream past the Gemini Area and The Roc. This route is located just to the right of a large right facing corner.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Excellent pro, standard New River Gorge rack.

This is up there with Burning Calves and Black & Tan in the pantheon of amazing NRG 5.10- finger cracks. Well worth the walk! Jul 10, 2017
