Talk about classic! This is one of the most recognised and popular boulders in the park. Its on par with Horizon, True Grit, Thews, AVP, and Olympus... You have to check this thing out.

Beast is as unique as they come. This wedge/tornado/arete shaped formation is one of those boulders that becomes ingrained in your mind, especially if you are working Beastmaker or Manchild. Come check this thing out alongside the just-as-classic Tiger Boulder that forms the cave-like feature commonly referred to as "The Room".

Getting There 

Walk up past the overlook and get onto the trail. Walk up the steps between the blocks and about 30sec down the trail and watch to the right for the cave-like "room" with the wedge shaped, overhung Beast Boulder on the right side of the room, and the white-quartzite striped Tiger Boulder on the left... cant miss it!

Classic! Start out from the sit, with half of your body under the arête, feet squeezing the belly of the boulder. Your hands will be on either side as well, left hand on the bottom-most small slot, right hand on the jug ledge. Move up along the arête staying to the left (moving right is the problem called "Man-Child) and climbing the tall side of the boulder until the highest point. Reach to the right to gain a good small knob and heel hook out right to mantle over the arête....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
