2nd (Main) Trestle Rock Climbing
View of the 2nd Trestle from the Practice Wall
This is where most of the action takes place. This trestle sees the most ascents largely because it's taller than the first trestle and is more easily accessed than the third trestle. It has about 11 routes on it, which means that some share bolts and anchors. See the overview for the layout of the climbs.
From the stairs, continue down the path that leads straight to this trestle.

This is actually pretty difficult. Head up the left side of the bolt line and feel free to use the arete because it's hard enough. Keep your body on the same side as the bolts though. I didn't see any other way to do it than making use of a mortar pinch and a mono undercling in the crux, which is before the second bolt. If you don't like falling above the first bolt, you may enjoy it more if you just top-rope it after leading Ice Dreams, which is a better climb....[more] Browse More Classics in Virginia
