Hey so I'm going to be stationed in fort lee for the next 9 months and I'm looking to do some climbing in the area but I have absolutely no clue what's worth my time traveling to or anything so if you have anything that's just fun and under a v7 boulder for me that would be fantastic Frank Martineau

There is some pretty good bouldering on the Blue Ridge Parkway about 2 hours from Richmond. Find beta at

The answer to almost all VA route climbing questions is that you should just go to the New River Gorge in WV.

Stony Man cliffs are a short hike relative to Old Rag if I recall correctly, less than 500 verts OldManRiver

Little Stony Man is a shorter hike but you definitely "get what you pay for" in my opinion. LSM is a bit on the chossy side imho and not nearly as interesting to climb at as Old Rag. Its not like the hike in at OR isn't scenic. Killis is right about Great Falls. A ton of TR possibilities with some nice routes but I wouldn't drive all they way from Fort Lee for it. UsedToBe

The only spots in Richmond are:
Manchester Wall,

Belles Isle (not really that great).

Peak Experience (awesome climbing gym).

The others mentioned are quite a bit further to drive, but probably a lot more worth it ;)
