Description 

Spider heavy climbing.
So many spiders it is hard to enjoy oneself, but the lack of crowds helps out a great deal.

There are quiet a few enjoyable climbs, and the area will never have crowds. Don't make the mistake of only ever going to Junkyard and never exploring downstream.

Getting There 

Continue past junkyard heading west for 5-20 min, stop anywhere and you are at dog wall.

This is likely the best route on the Dog Wall. Follow the broken crack system through 3 roofs. There are some sections of loose rock that is easily avoided. This climb is really exciting and is pretty solid for the grade. Well worth doing, even if it has some spider webs! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia

Lots and lots of poison ivy, some good routes, and very few people compared to junkyard

When crossing the power line cut, be sure to take the trail that trends downhill. There is a trail that goes above these walls, takes you nowhere, then peters out. It wasted 45 mins of my semi-valuable time.
