Donkey Kong V9 7C  Virginia : Southwest Virginia : ... : Coal Train Boulder
This low, beautiful, steep roof climb leads to a mega dyno.Sit start in the rear of the roof that is to the furthest right of the rear, riverside-most face of the boulder. Start with your right hand and heel on the ledge in the rear of the roof, left hand on a higher, flat crimp rail. Pull on and climb directly out the roof past a few holds. Blast a huge dyno out to the lug/s at the lip. Remember to tuck your legs high to avoid the dab (the taller you are, the harder this will be)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
