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.

Dial 911 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  West Virginia : The New River Gorge : ... : Snake Buttress
Dial 911 is one of the most sought-after 5.13's at the NRG, and deservedly so. This route is an absolute classic up some of the nicest sandstone I've ever seen. Start climbing up the easy slab for 25 feet to gain the start of the long series of crux moves up the perfect orange and black streaked face, culminating with a precision redpoint crux "cobra stab" into a letterbox.A few more more 5.12a moves over a roof will get you to easy terrain and anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
