Description 

This wall is one of the most secluded sections of the Endless wall. There are not a whole bunch of high quality routes here, but its worth the hike to climb the Mechanical Bull (13a). Most routes are 5.11 to 5.12 with an equal distribution of trad and sport lines.

Getting There 

Take the ladders to the cirque and then hike for ten minutes along the base of the cliff (climbers left). Total approach time from the Cirque ladders is 10 minutes. You'll know you're close when you pass by the obvious 10' "Stalagtite" that is imbedded in the ground.

This short route starts of a pile of cheater blocks precariously perched on a pile of crumbing rock. The bird's nest on the starting jug is probably not on. Less than a dozen moves and you are through the crux. A handful more and you're into the hueco grande to clip the shuts....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
