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 is one of the best of S.Nut's moderates and has a bolted anchor, making it a great warmup for the harder lines here. The only caveat is about 15-18 feet of unprotected squeeze chimney right off the ground, which is definitely the crux! You might be able to protect this opening with a big bro, but otherwise you'll have to just squeeze your way up to the first horizontal and some "thank god" gear. After emerging from the squeeze, enjoy amazing 5.9 face, crack, and layback moves up to one of the best views in the NRG.
On the right end of the buttress that separates White Wall upstream from the New Traditionalist area downstream.
