Graffiti on SJ's Heart Boulder. The most classic o...
The access here is allowed but tenuous MORE INFO >>>


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.

Getting There 

Ask, as the parking is small and access sensitive.
