In Wise County VA, there is a TON of really good sandstone. High cliffs, big boulders, and beautiful views. Flag Rock is a cool little park with several great boulder problems located along High Knob Rd, and there are untold amounts of perfect sandstone boulders near the lower reservoir. Beyond this, more toward High Knob, is another massive boulder field. Stay tuned for development!

Reckon this is the closest bouldering to Kingsport, TN? I'm heading down for the weekend and am trying to find a close spot to check out.
