Bolts 6, 7, and the anchors
The New River Gorge Rock Climbs (Wolverine Publishing) guidebook says: "Begin by climbing the leaning flake to gain the face. The moves above are thought-provoking, powerful, and technical. Everything you're looking for in a world class route." Easy climbing leads up through the first three bolts, followed by a thin crack. Climbing thin edges leads up to a traverse and a dyno, with a crux at the top. This route is an extremely aesthetic line that is worth entering into 5.12 climbing for.
This climb is located at the far end of White Wall when approaching from the Butcher's Branch trail. You'll know you're in the right spot when the area opens up to a breathtaking view of the valley with Endless in plain view across the gorge. The route Almost Heaven, likely named because of the view, is to the right 10 ft.
