Life After Greenstone (pre hold break), V9

Description 

Secluded bushwack accessible boulders with tons of potential for development. All the rock here is greenstone (as is most of the rest of the parkway). Plenty of opportunities for first ascents. Please check out blueridgebouldering.com/. No fires, camping, or leashless dogs.

Getting There 

See the map in the photos section. This area is currently only 2 boulders, but there is a ton of other rock to be climbed here and is actively being developed. If you find the mushroom boulder walk climber's right until you see two massive boulders we call "The Diving Boards". These two boulders could host some great sport climbs so if you're interested in that be my guest. Once you pass the Diving board boulders keep walking right a bit more until you see the God's Stone Boulder and this is the area we're called Greenstonia

SDS in the left corner of the large overhang that is somewhat up an arete. Move up the steepest part of the rock moving left at the top. SPOILERS: this was done in a kneepad. It probably isn't necessary, but that's the beta right now. This is in between the greenstone roof and greenstone grease....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA

Are there any known GPS coordinates for this area? Going to be driving home from school in a few days and wanted to stop here on the way.
