NO DRONES ON NATIONAL PARKLANDS
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. Park regulations prohibit all drone use over the boundaries without a permit.
Short and sweet, Esse Crack is definitely worth checking out. At only about 40 feet long, this S-shaped finger crack has a variety of entertaining moves and only a moderately difficult 10c. The crux is probably up towards the top, where the feet get thin and the crack can be a bit damp at times.
Just around the corner from 'Promised', and, well, in a corner! Starts below a low roof. Look for the S-shaped finger crack. Nice and tucked away on those crowded bridge days.
Great protection, small-mid cams/nuts. Anchor at top is large tree - bring something to extend 10-15 feet if you plan to top-rope. Possible to walk off to left, but be careful.
