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.
This route stays dry in a light rain. Climb up broken rock to reach the arete to the left of the crack system. Climb up the arete to reach the crack and follow it to the thin hands section and a great hand jam. Plug some gear in the thin hands section. From here, make a reach to a horizontal jug and keep going on pumpy but positive holds to the finish.
At the right end of the Sandstonia Area, locate the obvious overhanging crack system on the underside of a detached pillar.
