Description 

The Acorn Boulder is the first boulder you come to as you walk down the trail from the road. This boulder is short and jam-packed with lots of fun easy going boulder problems and a couple tough moderates.

Follow the trail down and this is the first, short, slopey boulder you will walk upon.

Tough!!This is the very first problem you will come to as you arrive at the drop. On the far right side of the boulder.Sit start under the overhanging boulder, right hand in the very lowest inward sidepull above the roof portion. Your left will be on a useless slopey crimp.The first move is to stab a right heel hook far overhead on a deep sloper. Slap through slopers to navigate to the middle of the face via grueling slopers to the slopey top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
