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.


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.


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
