Drive a few miles past camp, take the right hand turn off, cross multiple waterbars and park vehicle at a pull out of choice. Walk across 2-3 very chill creek crossings, follow until road becomes deactivated keep straight for another 5-10 minutes avoid 1st right hand turn off but take second RIGHT turn into gravel pit with fire ring. Turn left on to a nice quad trail within a minute you will be at "Gorge Us Creek Crossing", a well marked beautiful bridge crossing the Eldred River ( This is a good camping spot for an early start on the approach). Immediately after crossing the bridge look for a blue spray painted tree with RED flagger on the right going STRAIGHT UP into the forest. This is the trail. Follow worn path up into flatter terrain, keep your eyes peeled for flagger weaving leftwards into the old growth. The trail then begins to go uphill, easy to follow but steep. After 10-20 minutes uphill you will hit a very old road (more of a flat spot), the trail now begins to get steeper and a bit harder to follow. It roughly follows the arete of the forest going left and up from the flat spot. From here you are looking at a solid 2.5-3 hours of steep forested hiking (not quite bushwhacking, but could feel like it for some, though the trail is flagged the entire way). You will be following many colours of flagger (mostly RED), but NEVER the PINK logging flagger that says "Falling Boundary", Look for the Red "Search & Rescue" flagger and the sparse but there BLUE spray painted circles on trees. After many hours going up, up & away you will reach some massive boulders, this is where the trail begins to traverse right wards. You will cross a small gully (exposed, but not that gnar). You might be able to fill up water here, or at the base of "On the Virg". Traverse the trail right wards under the big roof, keep going until you see the very obvious LEFT FACING CORNER SYSTEM that is On the Virg. First pitch is 5.9 and runout. THE CLIMB IS MAGIC, GET ON IT.
