Life After Greenstone (pre hold break), V9


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 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

Sit down start on a large Jug/Crimp in the back of the save and move straight out of the cave via crimps until you hit some perfect jugs. Moving off the crimps onto the jugs actually seems to be the crux. Taller climbers can do some foot magic but one of the first ascentionists ended up catching a massive swing. The top is not hard but actually pretty scray. We cleaned and practiced the top on a rope....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia

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.

Ryan unfortunately no. Check out the map at: That is probably your best bet. Get some coordinates while you're up there.
