Gemini Rt. (5.10a) - New River Gorge, WV.


Great route! Challenging direct start (best), but also possible to traverse in from left to ledge. Fairly sustained finger crack, awkward flared pod (crux). Not many rests.


South Bridge Wall - left of Your Mother, Where Real Men Dare, Maranatha, Beginners Only....keep walking left along wall until two obvious face cracks appear together. Of the two (twin Gemini Cracks), this is the right one.


Good pro. Small-medium nuts, cams, etc. Shuts.

Pretty hard for the grade (I thought). Really sustained and, like the book says, a little dirty, but quite fun.
