Volume 2 – Rock Climbs of the Meadow River, Summersville Lake, and Gauley River

A few miles north of the main New River Gorge climbing areas (click here for that book) lie the Meadow and Gauley river canyons, and Summersville Lake. The crags here harbor an equally diverse selection of superb rock climbs. In fact, some of the New’s most famous routes are here, such as Lynn Hill’s Greatest Show on Earth, a massive roof in the Meadow climbed in the 1980s; and Apollo Reed, at Summersville, one of the most-attempted 5.13a’s in the East. But have no fear, there’s plenty of easier fare, too. This book documents over 1000 routes in these beautiful areas, the first ever guidebook dedicated to the world-class climbing of the Meadow River, Summersville Lake, and Gauley River.
