More sandstone boulders near the Reservoir! This tightly concentrated boulderfield is a climbers playground. Multitudes of freestanding giants with the majority offering flat, safe landings. Bring a crew and lots of pads. If highball bouldering isn't your favorite, no worries, there are many lower, comfortably high blocks to crawl over as well.

Boulder problems have been established here for 25+ years. Shayne Fields and friends found these blocks and named this awesome location "The Labyrinth". These original developers put up tons of short routes and top roped nearly every tall block in the area. Several great boulder problems have since been established.

Solid, bullet, beautiful sandstone and tall faces! More to come soon.

Getting There 

Drive only a minute above flag rock to the reservoir.

This line may be the best in the field. Exceptionally highball, proud, aesthetic and fun to climb. As good as this one is, be sure you have plenty of pads and spotters before starting the climb!Walk into the dark inner section between the Hell of High Water Boulder and the Allegory Boulder. Follow the arching crack line down from the top, and stand start on the lowest jug side-pulls (the first move off the start should send you into a thinner pocket/slot in the crack).Work up the edges and jugs,...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
