Spider heavy climbing.
So many spiders it is hard to enjoy oneself, but the lack of crowds helps out a great deal.

There are quiet a few enjoyable climbs, and the area will never have crowds. Don't make the mistake of only ever going to Junkyard and never exploring downstream.

Getting There 

Continue past junkyard heading west for 5-20 min, stop anywhere and you are at dog wall.

Right side of Dog Wall, climb the crack up to a ledge with a large boulder on it. Step on the boulder and climb the next crack above it, trending left (crux) to the next ledge. Step right onto the face below a tree and ugly looking tat for an anchor. Recommend using another route's anchor for the final person to lower off due to rusted quicklinks....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV

Lots and lots of poison ivy, some good routes, and very few people compared to junkyard

When crossing the power line cut, be sure to take the trail that trends downhill. There is a trail that goes above these walls, takes you nowhere, then peters out. It wasted 45 mins of my semi-valuable time.
