Description 

This wall is big and beautiful, the problem is that it is often soaking wet and there are huge death blocks of rock and ice constantly falling from the top. It could be an incredibly aesthetic area as well if it weren't for the garbage rain created by locals who huck their trash from the top. Possibly excellent routes, but climb at your own risk.

Getting There

Reach the ledge and finish by pulling the 3-4 difficult moves through the roof to get to the chains....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
