Climbing Area Description
This climbing mecca is located in the beautiful New River Gorge National River, with over 1500 routes on impeccable (well, usually) Nutall sandstone. Picture a lush green landscape with miles and miles of picturesque cliffs. Lush means rain, and the locals say that when the weather is good here, it is amazing - but when it's not good, it is downright horrible. Summers can be hot and humid, winters are mild with occasional windows of good climbing, spring and fall are perfect!

Best time to climb: Spring and Fall
Number of routes: over 1500
