Description 

A handful of boulders located just above the main area along the cliffline. The main boulder in this area is a house sized boulder with a well known 45-deg angle wall on its front side. Several nice boulders are pinned behind the 45 boulder with good problems that are rarely climbed.

Getting There 

Hike as if you are going to the iceburg route area, it will be on your leftside as you approach the iceberg.

Using the triangle at the lip for a toe or heel hook is key beta for everyone, it seems. Climb out the short overhang to a good jug 5' over the lip. Short and tall man beta exists. Bring your power and squeeze your way over this roof problem. Starting holds stay chalked because they are under the overhang....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
