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.
Start by climbing up the slab past the first 2 bolts to reach the overhang. At the overhang, traverse all the way to the left side to clip the 3rd bolt and get a shake out. From here, climb straight up on positive holds to reach a rail, clip the 4th bolt and traverse back right. Climb up, a bit left on small but positive holds to make a big reach to a positive hold and clip the 5th bolt. From here, traverse left, clip the 6th bolt and head up and left for a good shake. Traverse up and right, making another reach to a positive hold and clip the 7th bolt. The business now begins. Work your way up to reach a shallow 1-2 finger pocket and make a quick reach up and right. Clip the 8th bolt, utilize a very small crimp and stick a positive hold up and right. Mantle up to the anchors to finish. This route is sustained and can be tweaky on the fingers.
From the Honeymooner's ladder, head downstream around the first corner. Look for the obvious overhanging orange face to the left of a large boulder.
