W Virginia > New River Gorge > Meadow River Gorge > Upper Meadow > 4. Third Buttress
Access Issue: PARKING ALONG HIGHWAY 19 Details

Description

This route is a continuation of the unnamed 10a at the far right end of Third Buttress. If you are really jonesing for some trad run up this one, poor rock quality on the route and not bomber placements. The first ascent was done without gear, he brought his nuts but unfortunately forgot his rack.

Location

From the lower route (Unnamed) branch right at the roof continue up the roof to a great finger crack traverse which meets up with a finger crack in a dihedral. Rappel off the large pine tree.

Protection

Five bolts, takes a set of nuts. Bring a few larger hexes, not required but definitely recommended.
