The New River Gorge is one of America's premier climbing destinations with over 2,500 brilliant routes that offers some of the best sport climbing in the world.
The cliffs at "The New" or NRG are located just below the rim of the gorge and are made up of a very hard Nuttall sandstone. The rock is very featured, and an abundance of crack and face routes, with occasional large roofs. Almost all climbs are one pitch long and range from 30 to 120 feet in height.
The majority of the routes in the New River Gorge area are for advanced climbers in 5.10-5.14+ range of Yosemite Decimal System with about equal number of traditional and sport climbs.
