Easily one of the most popular, most photographed, most visited boulders on the LRT. This boulder has a host of V0-V4 boulder problems with perfect landings and fun, medium to tall top-outs. The boulder is full of crimps and jugs with a few slimpers (narwhal) and smooth drop stones thrown in the mix... Don't miss "Honeycomb", "The Hive", and "Royal Jelly"!

Be sure to check out the problem description of the Hive on GHSP Bouldering!

Getting There 

Just get onto the trail past the top overlook and walk down past the "room" where the beast boulder and the tiger-side boulder are (the cave-like place with the white quartz stripes). After you past that, just a few seconds down the trail is the next big boulder which is the Hive. Its a big round boulder sitting on top of a low block "podium".

On the Hive Boulder: Walk around to the huge separation in the boulder which could be spanned up. to the right side of that seperation there are several cracks/fractures and it makes a sort of fractured pillar. The problem sit-starts at the base of this fractured pillar and climbs the prominent crack and jug face holds to the top out. you can use a killer knee-bar in the middle of the climb which is always cool. use knobs on top to top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
