Great American Roof Rock Climbing
Parlier on the FA of "This American Life"...
This massive roof is perched up on top of the hill just outside of the coal tunnel and above the awesome little Hidden Roof. 25ft of pure horizontal roof climbing can lead to either an additional 25+ feet of highball greatness, or fun low mantles that you can hop down from. With only a few sections of chossy holds that are easily avoided, this roof is an excellent place to spend a couple of hours, get a power endurance forearm pump, or spend thee whole day.

In the dark recesses of the back of the 25ft roof is a long, massive, obvious jug ledge. Start matched with a heel hook. Make one move out right to a nearby jug, and transfer underneath to another long, awesome, in-cut jug rail feature. From this, climb out the belly of the roof on Hueco-esque pockets, jugs, and crimps. Transfer past a small face to the second tier roof. Work towards the massive Hueco pocket at the lip. Top out and mantle. Once you can stand with no hands, drop down.Please do no...[more] Browse More Classics in Virginia
