Feet cutting going for the jug on this route.

This one-move-wonder is the bolted line in between Unknown Crack (Right of The Virus), and New River Gorge Homesick Blues. Climbers under 6' will struggle to reach the first bolt which protects the early and only crux. At 6'2", I had a long blind reach from underneath the roof to get the first bolt. Once you have the first bolt, gain a high left crimp and whatever feet you can, and dyno up to a huge jug. Once you've pulled the roof the rest of the route is probably 5.7 or 5.8.


Look for the other obvious roof next to The Virus.


5 bolts (I think. It's short), 2 bolt anchor at the top to the left.

At 5'10", it's doable though a stick clip would be wiser. The crux didn't seem like it was getting the jug (easier with the right hand) but rather the next sloper up and right with iffy feet.

Agreed Leo, I cruised to the jug but fell a couple of times going to the next hold.

Fun route. Really enjoy the crux. It doesn't have to dyno'ed.
