Description 

This area is the hard-body hangout.

If you can climb mid 5.12 come on over and try out Reckless Abandon (5.12b/c) and Tobacco Road (5.12c) they are the warm-ups.

If you can climb 5.13 bring a patience partner and be prepared to hangdog your way up Apollo Reed (5.13a) or The Pod (5.13)

If you want a 5.14? FA come try out some of the equipped super-projects that have yet to go.

And for the rest of the non-mutants, there is also an awesome not-crowded swimming area right where the Reckless Abandon belay ledge is.

Getting There 

From the ladders follow the cliffline to climber's left past Gun Wall and you will find yourself under a large roof system, welcome.

Pod 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ 30 E7 6c  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : The Coliseum
Crank out a quick boulder problem through a roof and style up slopey jugs to a traverse into the Pod. Bust out the thin crux and gain a big ledge for the only rest on the route.Once the ledge is left, this route is ON! Only 5 moves to the chains...but they are tough! Remember that without an anchor clip it's not a send....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
