Mellifluous 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  West Virginia : The New River Gorge : ... : Fern Point
Classic NRG route with good variety...crack (tips-fingers-hands), thin face/slab (crux), and steep flake (layback). Climb crack to vertical slot mid-route. Protect well, solve slabby crux and move up face to nice horizontal. Then, follow left-leaning crack to flake and proceed to the top. Crux is brief, but technical, and requires some thought. Pro is good. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
