Description 

This wall is big and beautiful, the problem is that it is often soaking wet and there are huge death blocks of rock and ice constantly falling from the top. It could be an incredibly aesthetic area as well if it weren't for the garbage rain created by locals who huck their trash from the top. Possibly excellent routes, but climb at your own risk.

Getting There 

Go past mile one then go up the trail.

Lenten Temptations 5.12a/b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6a  Virginia : Southwest Virginia : ... : New Beginnings Wall
This Route is located in the middle of the New Beginnings Wall. It starts at the bottom of a left leaning crack. At the top of the crack break right through nice holds that lead to the first crux. Small slopey holds lead to a big move to the first ledge. Rest, then continue up easier but sustained climbing to the chains. Careful for rope drag if you are going to top-rope....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
