Description 

This thing is bad to the bone. nearly 20ft tall, slightly to steeply overhung, credit card crimps... what more do you need?

Getting There 

New Trail! Thanks to the hard work, dedication and passion from the volunteers of the GHSP Bouldering & Stewardship Weekend (2017) and the Central Appalachia Climbers Coalition we now have a nice climber access trail into the awesome Luminary Bouldering Area.

The easiest way to the Luminary Area is to walk down the back side of the Listening Rock Trail (not the start of the trail with the wooden overlook, but the trail head that is normally the exit of the loop trail which is at the corner of the lower parking lot). Walk down the trail and pass the trail’s end boulder and the Wildwood Bouldering Trail.

The trail into the Luminary Area when walking in from the LRT in this direction is at the start, just before the first boulder at the Autumn Boulders. There is a large boulder directly beside the trail at the Autumn Boulders (trailside) and the start of the Luminary access trail is just before it leading downhill. Walk down the stone steps and follow the trail, the first boulder you will come to is Equinox.

Could be 3 stars...Start low on the left side of the main face of Equinox. Find the low, thin crimp rails and follow them up through more (the crux is a cross-over through exceedingly tiny crimps) crimps and get to the top (Which are jugs and are the only non-crimp holds that the problem offers (Gotta love a GHSP finish!) at almost 20ft up....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
