This is a tiny local area in southwest Virginia near Marion/Abingdon. There are a couple of cliffs and a few boulders. The locals used this area as a "dump" so most landings have trash and broken glass (but it works). Also the blocks and cliffs have graffiti but are still climbable. The rock quality is good but loose rock and choss are still found or considered "off".
For the cliffs, the crag was blasted away in the early 1900s, so large chunks have fallen but most of the face is good to go.
The boulders are mostly lowball, sharp, but fun one-move-wonders.
While basically a "locals only" area, if you are nearby this is a good place to check out.
Ask, as the parking is small and access sensitive.
Sit start at the base of the boulder below the huge "blast hole" pocket/jug. At the base, start with a right on one of the two staggered flat rails, and a left on a distant sidepull.Reach back overhead with a right to the iron rib crimp, and match below that on another crimp. Dyno way out to the deep pocket/blast hole. Continue to the top as per "Mag Right"....[more]Browse More Classics in VA
