This area is home of the classic sport climb, Toxic Hueco, 5.11d. There's also a collection of harder trad lines here as well as some stout sport routes. Nearly all of the routes are very high quality.

Getting There 

Follow the same approach as for the Tan Wall, but continue on the ATV trail after passing the path for the Tan Wall. To access the right end of the Toxic Hueco wall, take the next path on the right heading toward the cliff. This will put you at the start of I'll Buy That For a Dollar. To access the left side of this area, continue further on the ATV trail and take the next trail on the right toward the cliff. This will put you at the base of Toxic Hueco.

This is a great route! Would be deserving of more stars if it was a bit longer. Start on a low boulder below some underclings and hand jams. Make a difficult move to get started and head right at the 2nd bolt. From here, find a kneebar, then continue straight up to the 3rd bolt. Get a quick shake and traverse up and right to reach the 4th bolt. From here, keep it together and head up into the short dihedral below the roof. At the roof, hand over hand traverse left to reach the monster j...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
