This boulder is just as accessible, if not more so than Olympus. The Rock House Boulder is steep throughout with an easygoing line straight up the front face. Don't be surprised if you gain several non-climber spectators while at this location, so please be considerate and keep the language/screaming/music on the "G" rated level while here.

Be sure to check out the problem description for Dark Horse on GHSP Bouldering!

Getting There 

Park in the middle lot of the Picnic Area. Olympus is across the road on one end of the lot with a wall of rhododendron blocking a view of it, Rock House is across the road on the other end of the lot with a good view of the boulder in more open environs, and the sign post telling about the Rock House Boulder and you cant miss it. Walk across the road and there is even a "Rock House" interpretive sign post to solidify your arrival... Gotta love GHSP...

Walk from the parking lot to the only boulder you can see and this will be the rock house boulder. once at the boulder, find the area where the two boulders converge to form a dihedral. Crazy Horse sit-starts four feet to the left (in front of the bad root/stump landing you have to spot and pad from) from the dihedral two low jugs, then up into two higher jug holds. from there, make a huge dyno to a giant jug ledge where you will kick a high heel-hook out to the right on. this is where things ge...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
