Description 

Virtually unvisited crag 1/2 mile upstream from Beauty Mountain. This crag can be a welcome escape during crowded labor day weekend.
Tall proud lines from 5.9-5.11 can be found here, come to pull hard, place sweet pro and have a blast in a most wilderness experience.

Getting There 

Park as for Beauty mountain, but head upstream and you'll find Keeney's Buttress shortly.

Climbing Season

For the New River Gorge Proper area.

Weather station 5.2 miles from here
