Comments: There is an established line in that general location called "The Dish" but I believe that may not be what you are referring to. I am not 100% but this may be a top rope that one of the guiding groups from Blacksburg or Radford use. If I recall its a pretty dirty gully like feature. Maybe 5.5 or less.

Comments: Honestly its probably no more than Class 3... being that its a no hands rest! Pretty hard to grade a gimmick, but its there and fun!

Comments: Due to some recent damage to the problem this now goes at V7 and probably climbs better than before! Justin can you update this page? Maybe change the name to coinside with your guide, etc?

Comments: To clarify this is for Pop or Drop Stand. Stand start with Left hand on a cood crimp (or the bad one if you can't reach) and right hand on the arete. Make a couple body tension moves to ledges and a easy, but high topout.

Comments: Needs a description: SDS on opposing sidepulls at the lowest point of the boulder on the downhill side. Make a couple tough pulls to a jug topout 8' off the ground.

Comments: Paul, Please confirm but based on your notes "Hokie Corner" was the name given as a top-rope. We later led this route, hence the name change.

Comments: Most natural start seemed to be matched on the bottom of the rail. Where her left foot is in this pic: mountainproject.com/v/10736904...

But, if you start further left you can give yourself additional bonus points!

Nice little climb for sure.

Comments: I agree with AAron's advice... start low. You can do a formal ass-down SDS for more movement but it's pretty awkward getting going!

Comments: At the moment this problem has three ridiculous 1+ foot long tick marks on the finishing jug. Pretty unappealing and not removable without a spray bottle and concerted effort. Aesthetics be damned.

Comments: Mind that this whole problem is climbed on a huge detached flake, seems solid though! Very fun.

Comments: Is the padding lower in the back left corner under the low roof? I am having trouble figuring out what that black square is, it almost looks like an optical illusion.

Comments: Roger that. I am planning to build something really similar in a Victorian attic. My debate is not for the view but for getting natural light in the room. I am leaning towards a few Sun Tunnels now that can also have electrical lights inside the tubes like recessed lighting! Sun Tunnel Lighting... more >>

Comments: Not sure I like the working name for this proposed beauty! If you are using any of the hands from space invaders as hands on this then something is wrong. The idea is to use the marginal slopers up the bulge to finish on the right side of inglorious, not to finish on space invaders. Basically what Metzman said.

Comments: This is an amazing problem. The mantle is committing but casual! Once you do the first move it gets easier the rest of the way!
