One of the best crags in Virginia. Don't go to Joshua Tree to get on superb granite, just head up to the hills, and bring your bear goggles-90% of the bears I've seen in my life up close were hanging out in this area.

Getting There 

If you're trying to navigate Old Rag without Eric Horst's book, you're a fool or a hiker (or both). I bought the book, the descriptions are the best out there, and if you keep a lookout for the triple tree as you near the summit, you'll be fine. I recommend hiking this approach and dialing it before dragging all your stuff up here.

Fun, solid hand crack. Depending on your hand size, the crux could be the bouldery start, the wide funkiness in the middle, or the thin hands at the top. Hexes work great on this route and lighten your load-I used my#3,3.5,and #4 camalots in the first 20 feet and wished I had more cowbell all the way home. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA

If I remember correctly, find the climb Short'n'Schweet and head directly opposite following a faint trail down to a small cliffband, which will be on your left. Walk along the cliff and then further down until you can head to the left and you should be right at the Wall that Dreams are Made Of.
