This boulder 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 to pull down in privacy.

The Picnic Boulder is short but lengthy, and has plenty of steepness to go around. The downhill end has a massive, handsome, overhanging roof with an interesting mid-stripe of quartzite.

If you like v6's, you can find four nice ones here.

Getting There 

Hop across the road from Olympus and into the Rhodos. Look for the short boulder with the long steep roof. This is it.

Great holds, great sequence!Find the downhill end of the boulder with the huge roof. walk over to the right side of the roof in front of the stand of close, thin trees. Find the large, low chunk jug infront of the trees and match on the chunk.Trend left up and along the edge of the roof along nice comfortable jug hands. Follow the jugs to the tip of the boulder to top out in style....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
