Osborne is separated into three sub-areas for easier organization and orientation. West Osborne is the western-most sector, differentiated by two ridges, (east and west)and by the road (above/higher than the road is North Osborne). Any boulders in the ravine are considered East Osborne. The West boulders are all on the western ridgeline. Also, the West boulders have their own parking and trail.

Getting There 

Park in the West Osborne pull-off. Walk down the trail/road past the gate, and then left (before the road turns right) to Seuss and Admiral, and many many more...

Short, steep and thought provoking, this line is a must-do for the area. Begin on the arete and work your way through interesting and fairly good holds to some big moves and a great crux up high on the steep face. Foot Work is key....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
