Access Issue: NO DRONES ON NATIONAL PARKLANDS Details
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.
A nice route that saves its crux for the top after you run out of gear options. Unlike most gear routes here, the crack stops at about 3/4 height. Make sure you use those horizontals to get more pro in before going for the top. Even so, a pitch from the top is a long ride!
