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.

First bolt line you get to on the hike into Fern from the fern buttress pullout. Make some moves to a really cool pocket, then pick your way underneath the overhang. Undercling your way on to head wall's crimps. Keep it together and wiggle your way to the top. Going straight up from the last bolt is pretty hard. Escape left to the slab to see anchors above....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
