Description 

The October Boulder is in a tight cluster of boulders to the left of Persia and behind/uphill a few meters from Recovery Boulder cluster. This is the boulder behind "Perfecto Boulder"

You will see on the downhill facing side (the face toward Persia) a seam running horizontal across the face. This is the start to "Kettle Cooked". At the back facing the forest away from the trail is the "October Slab".

Getting There 

Walk up toward the recovery boulder cluster off of the trail, uphill. Keep going past Recovery and behind it is a long line of nice boulders.

This one was cleaned and sent in approach shoes, but I suspect it still deserves a solid V0/1 grade. Super fun!Start underclinging the very low lobe and use the nice jug crack to the left side and thin holds on the right until you can stand up. slab up thin holds to the top jug. Balancy and fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
