FEA Boulder... Climber on "Austin's Seam"...


This is one of the most iconic boulders in M-Knob. A long roof with difficult lines near a view that goes on for miles. The hike up to it may be long, but its a great pay off in the end. This is one of my favorite boulders in the field.

Be sure to climb "FEA"(V5) and "Austin's Seam"(V7). Austin's Seam may be my favorite V7 to climb at Mcafee's.

Getting There 

At the top of the mountain, find the overlook and walk on through a series of trails off of the AT. there are little chasms, one of which you will find this boulder and the ships prow arete in.

I cant recommend this line enough!! If a finger friendly crimp seam traverse with feet off dead points and a pump-fest finish sounds like your cup-o-tea, than mhike up and get to work!SDS at the left side of where the roof starts. Traverse the thin, kind, slopey crimp seam across the roofs lip, around the arete corner, and top out through the slopey water groove....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
