Anonymous Flake Right 5.8- 5b 16 VI- 14 VS 4c  Virginia : Harrisonburg and NW VA : ... : Buzzard Rocks
Slab climbing to a lone bolt. Clip it and make the crux move of getting to the large flake. Follow the flake up and right placing finger to hand sized gear. Make an anchor on the tree at the summit. Not as hard as it looks from the ground, this is a great route. Bring a 60 meter rope, you'll use most of it....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
