This zone of Endless Wall is one of the nicest areas to bust out your trad rack. It hosts some really nice routes including The Undeserved, Back With My Kind, Cellibate Mallard, Roy's Lament, Hot Tuna, Tattoo and Lee Robinsons' bold direct start to The Underserved, Brisquet Back Direct.

It starts getting shade around 12 or 1 pm. It depends on the time of week or season to how crowded the area will be. The rock here, like he rest of Endless is of the finest of sandstone in the world.

Getting There 

You can approach this cliff the fastest by rappelling in from the top. When you see the first overlook sign on your left go to the edge of the cliff and skirt down a little chimney, eventually breaking left to a two bolt station (The Underserved anchors). Make sure you be careful not to kick any loose rock down below you. This approach requires a little exposed down climbing so be careful.

The recomended way is to approach from the Cirque, Jacobs Ladder or Honey Mooners Ladder.Again, it is imperitive you do not kick any loose rock down below you when rappelling in from above! Also make sure no one is leading up The Undeserved so you don't rap in on someone while they are on the sharp end.

Tattoo starts 25'-30' to the right of The Undeserved. It is an obivious bolted line up beautiful streaked sandstone. Start off climbing from a block at the base to gain a series of crimp moves up the heavily chalked face. The crux comes up high right below a small roof. After a shake, traverse out left making 5.10 moves a little ways off your last bolt. Now stick the deadpoint crux with the bolt even a little more further below. It is a clean fall none the less. There is a few more moves to a tw...[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
