Description 

A massive area with amazing potential for both routes and bouldering. Multiple cliffs and free standing boulders with varied height from 10 to 40+ feet.

Getting There 

Stop at the pull-off and look for the roadside boulder. Walk down the trail past the gate and follow the cliff line. There is a pull-off before the roadside boulder that gives access to more blocks and crags on the adjacent ridge side as well.

If there are folks in the parking spot, don't try to stop there, pull off at another location and walk the road.

On the rounded end of the boulder closest to the road, stand-start mid-face in the deep jug rail. Trend left to a smaller edge and fall into a nice pinch. Grad the higher, small edge above the pinch and make a tough move to latch the rounded pebbly sloper side-pull. Finish up the bulge and over the mouth-like gap to top out the boulder....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
