Description 

Big, dark, gnarly,super highball... All things that describe this lone boulder. The left side starts out tall and quickly crescendos to a high point at 25+ feet of slightly overhung awesomeness.
The boulder afterwards becomes less tall at 15 feet, but steeper. Further right it shortens still, and curves back around to its side where it tapers down to the earth. The boulders face overall is approximately 50+ feet long. There are two fantastic crack lines and plenty of face to pull on here.

Getting There 

This is a very hard boulder to find without a guidebook. Feint trails that become overgrown during warm months. Follow specific boulderfield access/directions in the GHSP Bouldering Guidebook, or GHSP's Rakkup Guidebook App

As you approach the tall, dark front face look to the right of the super highball. The lower right face has two prominent cracks, and this problem ascends the left crack.Sit start on the small "starting block" slab that is under the boulder with your hands matched on the lower right side of the crack's base. pick up and cross over (my favorite move on the line) and up to the next quality jug on the adjacent side of the crack. Gain a higher right side gaston on a raised portion inside. side-pull ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
