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

Unless the conditions are dry (spring or fall) the crux jams are slimy and close to impossible....[more] Browse More Classics in West Virginia
