Hermit Cave Area topo

Private Property - Access Sensitive MORE INFO >>>


A series of jumbled blocks just upstream of a nice overhanging cliff band. A good variation of Slabs, roofs and cave problems. The Hermit Cave and Hermit Cave slab are not to be missed.

Getting There 

Take the river trail out of the corner of the parking lot through the campsite, walk downstream for about 10 minutes. As the trail dies off and the fallen trees become impassible, hike away from th elow river bank up to the upper bank (about 30 ft up). Hike through the hemlocks between two large boulders (Air Jordy on Left and Mystery on Right) and trend diagonally up the hillside. Hike along the cliff band and this will be the first cluster or boulders you will find.

Heart Attack Jack V5 6C  West Virginia : Bozoo : ... : C2: 211 Spot Boulder
Squat start on shelf in break below the roof. Reach right to a crimp/pinch on the face and left to a good triangle. This puts you completely horizontal, finish by cutting the feet and climbing straight using crimps, and a finger lock into a high balancey finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
