Overlook Area Rock Climbing
A snowy Hive on the 26th of October, 2013
This is the LRT's most visited area. The approach cant be beat and the boulders are fantastic. With classics like Tigerside, Beastmaker, Strength Of One, Abyss, The Hive, Honeycomb, and a perfect Warm-Up Wall to get loosened up on... Whats not to love?
The lookout offers visitors a taste of the Highlands, and the boulders start directly beside of it. The Bil-lingual boulder is the first fun problem you will come to from the lookout, and the line of boulders stretch on from there. Either walk on the trail which will lead you directly to "The Room" where you will find the Tiger Boulder and the Beast Boulder, or hug the line of boulders facing the road for lines like Abyss and Strength In Numbers and Strength Of One.
The Hive, Warm-Up Wall, Space Boulder, Foggy Mountain Fin, and the Kung-Fu Boulder are located past the Beast & Tiger Boulders.

Move up along the arête staying to the left (moving right is the problem called "Man-Child) and climbing the tall side of the boulder until the highest point. Reach to the right to gain a good small...[more] Browse More Classics in Virginia
