Ambassador Buttress Rock Climbing
So named because of the elderly gentleman that lives in the area who used to be the Ambassador of Zimbabwe.
Great collection of different 5.10 and 5.11 climbs. This area is frequently used as a place to throw down a bunch of TRs and get a workout, and not as a lead climbing destination.
The NRG's first sport climb is here, The Bolting Blowfish (5.12b) this crimpy climb won't leave you wondering why it was bolted.
Park on left just before road from Visitor's Center comes down and joins State Road 82 (road that goes under the NRG bridge)
Climbing Season For the New River Gorge Proper area.
Weather station 4.3 miles from here
