This can be tricky to find, but it contains a couple of great problems including the namesake V8.

Getting There 

The WAS boulder is approximately 6.1 miles up the canyon from town. It's just past the Answer Man area, and the boulder itself is below the road just before you reach a parking pullout. There is a faint trail down off the road, and once you're in the trees you'll be standing right on top of the boulder.

The top of the boulder is only a few feet below the road, so if you find yourself bushwhacking through the trees with no rock in sight you're probably not in the right spot.

All the same, it's intimidating at the crux.Start by smear-jumping your way up to the giant hueco, then move out left and up the arete before reaching the crux topout moves. Although the height keeps you on your toes (or heels, as the case may be...) don't be afraid to let yourself fly....[more]   Browse More Classics in WA
