Begin on eye-level pockets left of the big crack. Use face climbing and the crack to get to the high first bolt. From here break left and follow the bolt line through the slightly steeper, but extremely fun and interesting 2-bolt crux. Fight the temptation to use other lines to bypass blank-looking sections (the holds are all there), reach the first edge and mantle up. Walk forward and continue another 20 feet up to a finish with a great view. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia

It would be cool if you could add some pictures of this area.

This is a local's area with potential access issues if more folks started parking in the vicinity (the whole place could get shut down). Once the parking situation is handled, and the trash and graffiti is further cleaned up (it's come a long way since the place started getting developed), photos will be posted. Right now it would be cool, but not smart, to add pictures of this area.
