Description 

The Third Buttress is home to many unique routes. Most are fairly long for this area and many have awesome roofs!

Getting There 

The approach for the Third Buttress is essentially the same as for the 1st Buttress. Follow the old railbed upstream along the Meadow River. After about 10-15 minutes, you will find the cairns and path that lead uphill to the 1st Buttress. Continue along the railbed, passing a creepy shack on the right side of the road. Once you see this, continue a bit further and look for a set of cairns on the left at a path that heads uphill. Follow this path until you reach the cliff. The path should put you at the base of Meathead, 5.11c sport.

Bittersweet 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : Third Buttress
Bittersweet is a fun climb that is marred by a manufactured hold between the second and third bolts. Without the addition of this glued on rock the climb would probably be a really nasty 14- or it might not even be possible. Even with the addition of the stone this is still the location of the crux.Start with 15 feet of roof climbing on sculpted slopers. Clip the second bolt and then blitz the crux swing dyno. Take a really good rest at the third bolt before taking on a second easier crux. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
