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.
Located 15-20' right of Fred Sandstone Flake. Scramble up the lower slab with a couple of interesting moves to a ledge stance below a small roof and short headwall. Arrange pro from small wires and cams then pull onto the vertical face where a sequence of thin edge and flake moves leads past more clean, small protection to easier but still steep ground and a mantle onto the wide flat ledge at the top. Notable is that this climb's onsight first ascent was done at midnight under the light of a full moon, with the quite drunken f.a. party wearing headlamps- hence the name Werewolf. We were camping just down the hill below Bubba City and it was a beautiful night, so we said, "Let's go climbing!"
Bubba City 'Beer Wall' area. Descend by rappel from any of the trees on top of the buttress.
