Description 

This short little roof is right off of the trail. While it’s not much, it has two nice lines and a tough project. It's located just off of the trail in and right before you get to the Ginseng area.

The landing isn’t bad although there are some ankle grabbing hole under the leaves (I’ll try to fill those in some next time I’m there) to watch out for.

Getting There 

Follow the black blazed markers up the trail. As you reach the top of the hill and start to descend back down to where you will find the Ginseng Area, watch to the right of the trail for the small but enticingly steep and blank roof with a thin crack down the left side.

I'm 5'10" and this one is just out of reach for me.Start at the base of the dark vertical jug crack at the left side of the blank short roof. Use any feet and make the crazy long span to the slopey right side of the boulders arête.Do some bouldering magic and link up to the start moves of "Fringe Traverse" and finish as per...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
