New River Gorge

The New River Gorge is an absolute mecca for phenomenal sandstone sport and trad single pitch climbing. Much of the climbing is easily accessible on nice trail systems. Excellent climbing exists on both sides of the river, so you can chase sun or shade. AAC runs a campground in the area, and the town of Fayetteville is home to an incredible local climbing community centered around the Water Stone Outdoors gear shop. If you find a good weather window, this place cannot be beat.
