Moving out the roof on Poundin' The Pooch


This area includes the classic, steep face of the Tomb Raider boulder, as well as the adjacent Ship's Prow cave just to the left.

Getting There 

From the walk-down, go slightly downhill and left, until you hit the signed "Rattlesnake Trail." Take a right, and walk for a couple minutes until you hit the super-obvious Tomb Raider boulder, with its distinctive downhill-facing, 70 foot long, 45 degree overhanging face. There are a couple flared hand/fist crack splitters on the Tomb Raider face as well, which definitely go, but I have not added them to the routes list.

Poundin' The Pooch V3 6A  West Virginia : Coopers Rock State Forest : ... : Tomb Raider Area
Really fun- my favorite at the grade at Coopers! Although the difficulties end quickly, this problem is pretty long. Sit start on your choice of an assortment of pockets under the small roof. Make a powerful reach up to some good edges and turn the lip of the roof on good holds. Make a long move to a sloping dish and reach for some good jugs underneath another roof. Traverse right under the roof on good holds and top out on a ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
