The National Park Service will host a meeting on rules and regulations for climbing activities at New River Gorge National River and Gauley River National Recreation Area on Friday, March 16, 2018 from 5:30-7:30pm at the Canyon Rim Visitor Center.
There are over 1,600 established climbing routes in New River Gorge National River, making the park one of the largest climbing areas in the eastern United States. The extensive cliff that rims much of the western portion of the gorge is composed of Nuttall standstone, which is renowned among rock climbers. Since the establishment of the national river in 1978, the area’s popularity has blossomed to become one of America’s premier climbing destinations.
Attendees who require additional information or special assistance to attend and participate in this meeting should contact Chief Ranger, Duane Michael at 304-465-6518 or via email at e-mail us prior to .
