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.
This route begins on an orange left-facing flake. At the end of the flake, step left to a ledge. Maintain momentum through steep horizontals to the top.
This area is best approached from the left. After leaving the Springboard area, the trail continues along the cliff, eventually passing under the giant cap roof left of the Grand Space dihedral. Some 200 feet past Grand Space is the obvious splitter crack Ritz Cracker.
