Description

Bountiful boulderfields and copious crags found throughout the far southwestern region of Virginia. Appalachia at its finest. Whether it’s perfect southern sandstone, chunks of gnarly granite, big quartzite blocks, or steep volcanic rhyolite up in GHSP, this corner of the Old Dominion has something that will put a smile on your face. The SWVA region spans some 240+ miles from east to west including an impressive array of rock types originating from different geological ranges: The Appalachian Plateau, Great Appalachian Valley, and The Blue Ridge Mountains.
