Description 

Alum Springs is a public park in Fredericksburg with a long but relatively low bouldering wall.

Getting There 

Take I-95 to Exit 130A. Travel on Route 3 East for about 1.6 miles and passing under Route 1. Take a right at the light onto Greenbrier Dr and follow it to the end of the road. You will pass a (usually unmanned) gatehouse and will have to drive through a small creek to get into the park. Park and walk to the back of the lot (South) and up the hill. Follow the trail to the right for a short distance and you will see steps leading down to the right. You will see the climbing area from the base of the steps.

a few moves from the start of REDMAN

REDMAN V0-1 4+  VA : Alum Springs
around the middle of the cliff is a little corner about 4 feet off the ground. In graffiti, "REDMAN" is written across the face of the rock. start in the corner and work your way right across the face. Work your way right as far as possible. For the first 10 feet the problem is probably V0, but the ledge drops out afterwards making the following section around V1. Good luck....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
