Sunny, loose, and spider filled and never crowded.
The routes here are varied and spread out. There are a few Ultra-Aesthic lines up the arete that faces the road, they are overhanging and on perfect orange snadstone. Very cool.

Getting There 

Drive the old way over the river and you'll see it just before hitting 19 on your left. You will only see buses from Lower New rafting adventures on this road, and maybe some crazy WV locals. Most folks now-a-days just take the NRG bridge and don't bother driving the 30 scenic drive down to and up from the river.

Climbing Season

For the New River Gorge Proper area.

Weather station 3.5 miles from here
