Holey Sheets 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a PG13  West Virginia : North Bend State Park : Castle Rock
The crux is near the top there are a few deep pockets but other than that the next holds are sloped but you can't tell from where you are.This is a fun top rope route for some with a little experience, but could be kinda frustrating. Not many places to place pro I wouldn't recommend it as a trad route and it wanders a bit more than I would like if someone were to bolt it....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
