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. Park regulations prohibit all drone use over the boundaries without a permit.
Start inside the chimney and climb up the left face and traverse left to reach the 1st bolt. From here, climb up and traverse a bit left to reach the 2nd bolt. From here, climb up and stem left to reach the 3rd bolt. Continue straight up from here passing the 4th bolt and then some dirty holds to reach the shuts. Not a great climb, but it serves as a warm up if you're in the area.
Best accessed by walking down the road to the front side of the Super Mario Boulder. Walk up to the Super Mario Boulder and then follow the trail up and left to the cliff. This route begins just to the left of a wide chimney.
