Start with two quartzy pockety/incut holds and work your way up past a matched crimpy edge to a side pull placing feet in small holes and pockets, edges, anything. Continue to another side pull/flake and reach the top. It's a bit of a slab with lots of really slick quartz veins running through it....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA

I spent so many days here building my skills as a teenager. Some stout talent has bouldered at Moorman's. I know some of the names include Royal Robbins, Charlie Fowler, Kevin Kehoe and John Sherman. It'll always be my home boulders.

As of my last visit on May 28th 2016 there are some freshly posted 'No Trespassing' signs on the trees by the road that lead to the approach, and another one a little ways down the trail. We spent a few hours working some problems and weren't harassed, but be mindful that the landowner may not like climbers on their property these days.
