Description 

This boulder and block duo is tucked away from the more popular Rock House and Olympus Boulders, and is out of the public spotlight. If the kids and onlookers are crawling all over, then scurry across to the Picnic boulder and Block to pull down in privacy.

The Picnic Block is the smaller block that is nearly touching the Picnic Boulder. The uphill end thrusts up to form a long, thin, aggressive point/roof. It also houses the 500th boulder problem of the park.


Getting There 

Hop across the road from Olympus and into the Rhodos. Find the Picnic Boulder, and the block is the smaller one with the tip nearly touching the boulder.

This thing is awesome, but the shorter you are the harder it will be! I am '5"9/10 and this one is at the absolute furthest extent of my reach.Start at the huge obvious jug under the low right of the steep, low, little roof of the block. Situate feet and find a way to gain the far left edge of the boulder. Scale the low arête left lip to the higher jug to top out over the left, rear side of the boulder....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
