Area to the west of Bridge Buttress. This area sees little action but only because of its slow drying time, and "long" walk in (10 min)
You should plan on carrying a spider wand up each climb with you in this area.
There are tons of fun corners and flake systems that range in height from 30-75 ft. Most of the ratings are from 5.7-5.10d

Getting There 

Same as for bridge buttress, but continue west on trails just above the road.

Start below an overhanging orange pillar. Climb up to the pillar and follow a crack to its right (#3.5, #3 Camalot just below the pillar, orange TCU fits the crack on top of the pillar). From the top of the pillar (semi-rest) continue through the overhanging section. The crux move is pulling a sequence of flaring finger jams to finally some good holds at the top. Unless the conditions are dry (spring or fall) the crux jams are slimy and close to impossible....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
