Geeeoooddd, pictures don't do justice!!


The baddest of the bad as far as The Cascades goes. Big, steep, proud, and full of hard projects. Steep and powerful, the faces and arête all have hard projects with technical, harsh lines. The landings are all good, although pads tend to slide in the fall due to leaves.

Getting There 

Head across the hillside from the Pyramid Area for a while. This big fella is tucked away in a deep drainage.

Stand start and follow the blunt arête up through subtle pinches, sidepulls, and an undercling to the sloped top out... Tough as nails and as proud as they come....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA

May end up being the best boulder in VA... once a crew of rock stars put down these lines. Dreamy. My I-phone photos do it no justice, this beast is for real.
