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 on a short wide corner up to a spider-web filled alcove. This first section has some loose rock. From the alcove, go out a couple little roofs, into the imposing overhanging splitter. Overhanging hands, thin hands, and ringlocks gradually get more vertical, but the climbing stays pretty hard and the crack gets thinner. Be aware that toproping this route can be a major cluster, due to its steep and right-leaning nature. This is arguably the best pure jamming route of any grade at the NRG.
Pretty far down the line of the South Nuttall cliffline. Walk past the concentrated area of Temporary Insanity, Fingercrack in White Corner, etc., go under the Waterpipe Cave, and Luv Nothing will be at the top of a small little hill just right of a big corner system. About three minutes past this is a 5.2 climb-out; one of South Nuttall's rare access points.
