Description 

The Paradise Boulder is just as its name implies. Beautiful, large, and atop a grassy bald in the VA Highlands. The back side of this boulder is highball and challenging. The short, steep nose has another fun compression sequence, and the boulder promises more problem as the season approaches. Stay tuned for updates!

Stand start on the left portion of the back, highball face. Work up long, delicate, often reachy moves to subtle holds until the slab upper portion becomes easier and walk/slab to the top. This one can be a little sketchy without a few pads and spotters but the landing is alright....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
