Brand new park for Albemarle County.
About 8 miles northwest of White Hall (about 13 miles from Crozet).

Trails are still being developed (about 3 miles worth are done at this time with plans to have about 15 miles worth).

Various clumps of nice sized boulders in quiet seclusion.

Immediately go out right to furthest crimp, then bring left over to the crimp next to it.

Jesse,
I do have some recommendations. But, I am not at all familiar with the climbing in the region or the efforts of an LCO that may have worked with the park in the past. There is no harm in emailing and setting up a meeting with the park staff pertaining to volunteerism from climbers on park trails, and that might precipitate to allowing access trails to some of the popular boulders. Feel free to email me, I'd be glad to help if you all have any questions about it.
