DescriptionThis is the standard Boyscout Top Rope Wall. It is bolted and pretty tall and aesthetic but there is a "death landing" at the bottom.
The first wo ascents of the "BSTRW" were in 2011:
-Matt Morganton was the first climber to scale this wall. He made it up near the top where he blow off a hold and fell. His left foot decked out on the 3foot ledge at the base of the wall and he crashed to the ground on his back. He took a break and afterward,with a swollen ankle and bloodied back, he climbed the wall in its entirety.
-Then not long afterward Matt 'Mokolai' Bielejeski took a turn at it and also climbed the face.
although the route/problem is fully featured and just slightly slabbed, it is highly recommended NOT TO BE CLIMBED due to the fact that the holds are weathered and smooth, and lets not forget the landing. At the bottom is a 3 ft high, 3 ft wide ledge positioned perfectly to deck out on.
Locationwalk up the hill from the Massie Gap parking and go past the pony gate. top the hill and link up onto the southbound AT trail to the right. head toward the massive, completly obvious and exposed cluster of boulders. stay on the trail and you will come to a huge face on your right... this is it.
