Description 

Mostly shady at the beginning of Fern Buttress

Getting There 

Hike into Fern Buttress from the pull off with the tourist sign. This is the first area you come to. At the fork in the trail, take the left (high) trail. If you take the lower right trail, you'll add tons of time to your approach because you'll have to backtrack.

Very fun short route at the beginning of Fern Buttress. Starts off on big jugs that force interesting moves and moves to a bulge that makes you think. Grab some small holds and pull hard for the good holds to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
