Description 

These two boulders are surely some of the most aesthetically stunning boulders in the park. Large, sweeping, steep, and full of burly lines. This was at one time one single large boulder, but the middle split and there is large opening between the two now (hence boulder(s)). The far right section of the right boulder is AVP-esque, but otherwise the texture and characteristics are more granite-like than other GHSP boulders.

Getting There

To the furthest right of the right boulder, find the obvious, long, left trending, diagonal crack.Sit start matched at it base with your butt cramped up on a low block. Move up the crack trending left and feel free to use any good holds along the way. Top out as the crack diminishes at the lip. There are good little quartzite knobs to the right to assist with the finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
