About Beauty Mountain:

Home to some of the best trad AND sport routes in the Gorge, Beauty Mountain is every bit as good as Endless Wall, though not quite as -- ahem -- endless.
Nearest town or city: Fayetteville, WV
Directions: If you're headed to Beauty Mountain, you have a number of parking options. For the Super Mario Boulder and the downstream end of Beauty, follow Lansing Rd. past the Endless Wall parking.

Option 1: when you get to Nuttall Cemetery Rd., turn right. Follow for 1/8 mile until a three-way fork. Park in the small space between the middle and right-most forks. Space is extremely limited here, so if it's full... Option 2: Back where you turned onto Nuttall Cemetery Rd., there was a pull out on the left. Park there. From either of these, walk down the middle road of the fork, and pass a locked gate to continue. The road will curve left and head down hill. Be on the lookout for for a climbers' trail heading left. (Super Mario Boulder is about 50 feet further down the road on the right.) This trail will take you across a creek. You'll hit the wall right at the Brain and a classic 5.9 sport climb called You Want It, You Got It. If both of the aforementioned parking areas are packed, be reasonable. Do not park on private property and do not block any road. Instead... Option 3: Head to option 1, then take the left fork for 1.3 miles, where you can either continue straight on dirt/gravel or curve sharply to the left on pavement. Stay straight and park in the first pull out on the right. From here, approach by following a trail under and along the power lines to the fifth tower. (Locals also know a detour that bypasses the biggest hill.) From the fifth tower, two trails head left. Take the first one, which will deposit you at the bottom of the upstream end of Beauty Mountain, close to Backlash, Super Crack, etc.
