Description 

This one is uphill and to the right from the Pyramid Boulder. Walk uphill for about 10 yards and then turn right and head parallel to the trail until you see the cool slab boulder.

This boulder has a beautiful, blank midface and some fun, easy lines on the left and right.

Use a couple divots and smear up to the mid face where the holds disappear. Get a high foot and delicately "stand up" to the distant tiny crimps. Top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
