This is up and right on the hillside when looking at the Contrast Boulder.

Pulpit is tiny. But in light of its small stature there is a tricky little boulder problem up its slabby face, and the block shines obviously while at the Contrast boulder, enough so that it warrants exploration of a fun little V1 is what youÂ’re looking for.

Getting There 

Up and right, and well within sight from the long face of the Contrast Boulder.

Jack In The Pulpit V1 5  VA : Roanoke/New River/Blacksbur... : ... : Pulpit Block
Arisaema triphyllum, or more commonly "Jack in the pulpit" is a cool flowering plant native to this region of Appalachia. Several grow on the hillsides of the Cascades, and one was growing under this boulder while this line was FAd. Sit start on the low obvious rail. Climb up and left to a nice thin crimp and follow to the short top....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
