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.
This route could possibly gain another star if it saw more traffic and cleaned up a bit. The moves are interesting and the rock on the upper portion is great. Start by climbing up dirty broken rock to reach the first bolt. From here, climb up and get established on the face at the 2nd bolt. Make a few thin slabby moves to reach a jug at the 3rd bolt (crux). Continue up to a ledge and then follow the perfect white arete to the top.
This route is located on the far left side of the Head Wall Right side. Continue along the Head Wall passing a concentration of sport routes until the approach trail begins to head up hill at an arete. This climb begins to the right of a dirty chimney just before the cliff breaks down.
