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.
Begin by climbing up a left leaning weakness left of Two Step arete. Climb slightly back right to a stance before the route becomes more vertical. Follow juggy features and good pro until the climbing and pro begins to change in difficulty abruptly (crux). From here negotiate less than ideal pro and do hard moves to gain a body length or so distance above your gear. From here make a few moves left traversing to a silver master cam gear placement followed by a 1" cam placement enroute to the Riddle anchors. You can also climb straight up from the crux to top out the cliff but there is room for big fall potential and the climbing is a bit harder.
