Description 

Deep into the wilds of the park... This area is below the super slab boulder at the base of the Wildwood Area. There are multitudes of amazing blocks in the Deeper Downs, but getting there is more like "adventure bouldering" than a casual visit to the boulder fields of GHSP.

Many of these boulders boast beautiful quartzite veins much like the popular Tiger Boulder on the LRT.

I am listing these blocks not expecting many to visit here, but in the future there may be access trails that make getting to the blocks much, much easier.

Getting There 

below Wildwood... not for the faint of heart.

To the far left of the boulders steep face. Find the right facing sidepull feature, and the sit start is the diagonal rail below this.Match start the low diagonal and pop up through to a crimp. Move into the sidepull/undercling and then higher through to crimps. Gain the good knobs and jug at the lip, and top out with some difficulty....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
