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.
The technical crux is lower, within the first 4 bolts. The slab moves following the fourth bolt smothered in lichen may give you a bit of trouble. Mike Williams guidebook describes the climb as being "covered in a green dust, virtually not climbable in its current state." While this is definitely an exaggeration the green dust does add difficulty and detract from the quality.
The route is right around the corner from Thunderstruck. It climbs a green wall for three bolts and trends up the arete for the remainder of the route. The bolts on this are rusted quite bad, be careful if you plan to get on this route.
