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 climber to do the 15 min hike(a long hike for the NRG) to get the awesome views of the Lower New River.
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

Parking can be a pain here. If you get a spot think small and leave room for others.

There is plenty of parking room nowaday on the gravel road, you might just have to walk 100ft farther. (oh gosh!)
