Doug Reed on The Racist (5.13b), Endless Wall. Ph...

Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This wall is home to several New River Gorge classic sport climbs. Most of this wall collects lots of sunshine, so avoid it during the warmer times of year.

Getting There 

From the Honeymooners ladders head upstream, drop down in front of the boulder that has a couple of three bolt routes that look craptacular and up to the base of The Classic 11's Discombobulated and Legacy.

S.T.A.N.C. 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  West Virginia : The New River Gorge : ... : Snake Buttress
An intimidating climb inside an orange corner. It is easier than it looks though. The crux is a diagonal off-width traverse under the roof. This route doesn't get much traffic so you might first want to rap and clean it up from huge spiders....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
