Description

Whitmeadow starts with a slight climb and then a rolling traverse across the top of Cheat Mountain through a mix of moss covered pine trees with no under-story and thick mixed forest.

The descent begins gradually by dropping down through a narrow corridor of pine with some roots and spills into a steeper, more technical descent over big roots and rocks. The line can be hard to follow at times. In addition, youll certainly be distracted by the sound of water flowing beneath you. Its not imaginary and part of the other worldy experience on Cheat Mountain.

The route exits into rhododendrons on Shavers Fork.
