New River Gorge

The mecca for sport climbers in the eastern US and maybe the whole country. Around 2000 (yes thatís thousand) high quality steep climbs. Most of the climbing is hard. It is not as common to find climbs in the 5.5 to 5.9 range, but if you are wanting to train on the hard stuff, there are plenty of 5.12- 5.13 climbs. Although sport climbing is the king here, there is also some traditional climbing as well as top rope climbing and bouldering.

Directions from Morgantown

I 79 south to 19 south to the gorge bridge. Access to the climbing is on both sides of the highway from Ames Height rd (northwest) and Lansing rd (southeast).
