Katie Everson at the Crooked Road Boulder working ...
Big, dark, gnarly,super highball... All things that describe this lone boulder. The left side starts out tall and quickly crescendos to a high point at 25+ feet of slightly overhung awesomeness.
The boulder afterwards becomes less tall at 15 feet, but steeper. Further right it shortens still, and curves back around to its side where it tapers down to the earth. The boulders face overall is approximately 50+ feet long. There are two fantastic crack lines and plenty of face to pull on here.
This is a very hard boulder to find without a guidebook. Feint trails that become overgrown during warm months. Follow specific boulderfield access/directions in the GHSP Bouldering Guidebook, or GHSP's Rakkup Guidebook App

Climb through the crux of "Johnny Get Your Gun" but once in the nice jug (after the crimpy part, before the huge stuff way right, and still on the main face), toss far to the upper left to small holds. Bump through the small holds to gain the massive jugs high up on the main face, and top out to the high left.The right main jug has a thin "sharp" lip that would suck to dyno to, but is not bad at all to climb into. Up to you!...[more] Browse More Classics in VA
