Description 

Located in the shady a Pohick Creek drainage, a few gneiss, spray painted boulders that make for a couple problems. This isn't a great climbing destination, but if you have no-where better to go, it's something.

Getting There 

One way to get there is to park at round about at the end of Wadebrook Terrace (maps goo.gl/vQw5dP), and walk down Cross Country Trail for half mile. It very easy and paved.

Thanks for adding these! Access is good to go here? Looks like some cool blocks with room for a few more problems as well? Keep adding more photos and info as you get it!

I'm pretty sure access is good here. The stream-way and buffer is owned by Fairfax Country Parks. I also think there's some more potential boulders other side of the stream. I didn't have time to check them out.

Hopefully I will be able to come climb some of these boulders in December. Thanks for the info!
