If you are searching for a good bolted moderate, this one is worth coming to the Head Wall to do. Climb up a crack and make a long traverse left along a horizontal crack to reach the white arete (crux). When doing the traverse, you can take the high road or the low road, without changing the grade. At the arete, climb up and gain a stance on the left side. Climb up the left side of the arete to reach the anchors. ...[more] Browse More Classics in West Virginia

Some beta for getting to the Head Wall (as of 8/10): Park in the first Bubba City Parking area on the right side of the road. Cross the road and follow the trail to the power line. Continue down the power line and up a hill until you reach the Falls Creek Trail (Marked with blue hiker signs). Head left and continue to a paved road. (You can also shorten the approach by taking the first dirt road left as you head down the first power line hill. Follow this dirt road to the point where the dirt road meets the Falls Creek Trail at the paved road. The dirt road is marked with several yellow gas pipeline markers.) Cross the paved road and continue down the Falls Creek Trail passing a house to the right. When you reach a double track road, follow it right for a few minutes until you reach an overlook with a stone wall. Continue along the double track road, go left at an intersection, and look for a single track trail that heads down into the gulley to the left. Follow this trail to the base of the cliffs, the Head Wall is to the right (facing the river).
