Harlequin 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Honeymooner's Area
A great line! A bouldery crux at the first bolt leads to most excellent face climbing. A second, very thin, very technical crux comes after the sixth bolt. The runout to the chains looks heinous, but is 5.7 or easier. Old school 12b, but a very proud send once you put it all together.This route was recently rebolted by the NRAC with bomber stainless hardware, and will hopefully see more ascents now that the pins have been replaced....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
