Awesome place to climb.
Became popular in the early 1980s, as one of the original climbing destinations in the NRG.Located in the north portion of the gorge it faces south-west and it 3/4mi long and averages 60 to 120 feet tall. Beauty is best known for its crack, but over the past 10 years many hard sport lines have been established here.
Ram's Head is a beautiful scenic overlook that inspires visitors that aren't climbers to do the 15 min hike(a long hike for the NRG) to get the awesome views of the Lower New River.
Regarding parking: If there are open spots where the Williams guidebook designates, park here first and be mindful that it is a small parking area (read: You don't need 6 feet of space between you and the car next to you). Parking can be found along the dirt road as well, but this option should only be taken when the designated parking is full. Short approach either way.
Contiue past Nuttal and keep driving until you get to smallest Post office you've ever seen, take right contiue for 5 min, turn left on small gravel near top of cliff, hike in
Weather station 4.8 miles from here

Bring your fancy footwork and strong fingers to reach the anchors on this one. On a historical side note, Dan Osman soloed this route in 1991. The story goes that Dan worked the crux on a short leash never really diali...[more] Browse More Classics in West Virginia

If the lots are full do not park on the shoulder of Lansing-Edmond Rd. Last Saturday cars were being towed. Park at another lot and hike in.
