Comments: It's not that hard to get up to the crux, however that crux is hard as balls.

Comments: This is a bolted sport line, why does it get an R rating? Given I haven't been on it, but have been by it and looked up at it multiple times.

Comments: The dyno through the second roof is definitely the way to go. I feel like it's a lot easier than it's neighbor yowsah.

Comments: While it is part of endless wall, the parking and approach for this is the same as beauty.

Comments: Once you climb all of the climbs at sandstonia and then climb anywhere else in the gorge you will wonder why you ever climbed at sandstonia. :)

Comments: Feels easier than the 11b neighbor.

Comments: There are TWO no hand rests on this thing. The first one is right at the second bolt. You can jam your right leg in the huge horizontal and lay back. The second one is right at the fourth? bolt after the traverse. Clip the bolt and then look to the left about a foot or two over. You can get a double knee-bar. Boom, now this climb is 5.11b.

Adding to this.

A friend of mine was able to completely LAY DOWN where I got the knee bar. 5.10d

Comments: This route didn't have any moves harder than clipping the chains on it's neighbor, meathead. Almost everything on this route is a jug and there are huge feet everywhere. I also sneaked in a no hands, lay down rest about 2/3 of the way up utilizing a calf toe cam. That's probably the reason this thing felt like 11d to me.

Comments: Much easier to go left if you have't already tried.

Comments: I have seen two people, both solid 5.12 climbers, fall on this thing between the first and second bolt because of the rock breaking. Be CAREFUL going to the second bolt. If you blow up you will more than likely hit the ground. It could really use another bolt between 1 and 2.

Comments: Don't forget that bolts cost money and without organizations like NRAC we wouldn't have all of those awesome new lines. Make sure to donate some money to them on there website here, www.newriverclimbing.net/.

Comments: This thing boils down to 2 big moves and then pretty easy climbing. The roof looks intimidating, but like Fred said in the description it's way easier than you think.


Location: WV : The New River Gorge : New River Gorge Proper : Endless Wall : The Cirque : Superstition (5.12d)

Comments: Everyone goes left after the boulder problem and continues up another 3 or 4 bolts to the anchors and then lowers from there. Also the bolt at the top of the boulder problem is now a permy. Before the ledge where you traverse over to clip the anchors on the first pitch is some pretty fun climbing involving some technical undercling moves and big moves on big holds.

Comments: I have updated the information for this route. If you have any additional information purchase the new guidebooks that were just released by Michael Williams. Check out the link to them here. This route is in the Summersville Lake and Meadow River Volume 2.

Comments: Because it's private property, and the owner's insurance company told them to tighten down on the trespassing. We are hoping that something can be worked out in the future.

Comments: I'm 5'10" and didn't have to dyno a single time in this. I have also seen people around 5'7" on this route and they were able to do everything static as well.

Comments: As of now it seems that a logging company has placed boulders in the road out to the south side crags and they are impassible. This of course hinders access. Check with WaterStone on before heading out or use your own judgment.

Comments: This is an amazing route. One of my favorite 5.11s in the gorge, pretty sustained for the first 4 bolts then after that it lightens up a good amount.
