Description 

This is the most prominent face at the crag. Make sure you bring a static line or long webbing for setting up the top rope. All of the trees and boulders are located around twenty feet from the cliff top. The routes on the Main Wall stay very clean with little to no water runoff on this section of the crag. Bring you beta finding skills for classics like Coordination Street (5.10a) or Green Duchess (5.11b/c). Lack of natural gear placements make top roping the normal on this wall.

Getting There 

Follow the directions for getting to the crag. When you reach the cliff face, make a left. Follow the rim trail for 100 yards. You will see a path/water runoff that descends to your right. Follow this trail to the base of the cliff. You are now at the Right Sector Wall. Continue another 50 yards until you have reached the large face with no tree cover.

Begin in the broken crack system just right of a large "nose." Boulder your way through pockets and crimps to a nice rail. Make a few more moves to easier ground above. This climb gets right into the action at the beginning. One of the best routes for the grade in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
