DEET Boulder

Virginia > Shenandoah & NW… > Crescent Boulders

Description

A stand-alone boulder along the radio tower maintenance road.

Getting There

Ideally, you'll have someone drop you off at the gated entrance to the radio tower maintenance road cause if you park there you'll get towed. Otherwise you'll have to park in the lot on route 7 and take a not-worth-it hike to get here. As you walk towards the radio tower, the boulder will be on the right. If you miss it, no big deal, there is nothing special on it. This is an, "I've done everything in the area and need something else to climb boulder".
