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

Gain a higher right side gaston on a raised portion inside. side-pull ...[more] Browse More Classics in VA
