Aaron James Parlier on "Last Straw"

Description 

Certainly this is the standout area on The Hill. Tons of big boulders strew over the hillside. Many proud, tall, unique lines, with mostly excellent landings. Difficult to organize as the area is large with no defining features in the geography to help describe locations of boulders.


Getting There 

To reach (most of) the stones: A faint climbers trail leads uphill from a grassy knoll on the north side of the parkway, where the road makes a sharp turn south of peaks of oter. From this trail you hit (in order) seamless, values, bull, steves, burlstain, mafia, hunting, pediatric, geriatric, den, 500, sun, fortress, and finally bastion boulder.

This may help.... Trail probably is covered in leaves, but should be easy enough to folllow if you find the start of it.

Lattick V7 7A+  VA : The Hill : ... : Geriatric Boulder
SDS on bottom right side. Traverse left following the sloping triangle up, then down. A tough lat move off of the triangle and into the 'geriasstrick' problem was the crux for me. Finish up geriasstrick.Very friction dependent. Feels V5 in winter to V7 in warmer temps....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
