Aaron James Parlier on "Last Straw"
Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!

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.

AT- Super Classic V9

American Taliban V9 7C  VA : The Hill : ... : Values Boulder
The area test piece. Super classic in every regard. So good!Low stand start on good left sidepull and bad right side pull. Heel hook to help you move up and left on tiny crimps as you move out the bulge. Make your way left to eventually undercling a sort of 2 ft. triangle that points up hill. Chalk up, then move directly up with levitation or whatever you have in your bag of tricks. Once you get you feet onto the triangle its all over....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
