A classic scary mixed climb up the middle of the face. Start this climb by frictioning up quite a ways to the first bolt. Not terribly difficult but remember where you are in reference to help if you crater. Pass another 2 bolts and aim for the left side of the flake. Once the flake ends move up to the horizontal and then on to the anchors. Pro is kind of thin through the crux section at the top. Fun climbing through the bolted face. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
