Aaron Parlier on the FA of "Mono-y-Mono"...


Admiral is the rank of the highest naval officers. Since this looks like a wave, a "sinking ship," and is noticeably highball, "Admiral" is a fitting name.

Beautiful and daunting, the Admiral is unquestionably proud. Several fun lines can be found here. This highball has bullet sandstone, and in places many small pebbles. Pockets, crimps, and slopers are some of the features of this block.

Getting There 

Hike down the gated road leading down to Osborne West. Turn left before the Dr. Seuss boulder and head down hill (toward East Osborne). Look for the massive boulders, and you wont miss this one.

Climbing Season

For the Southwest Virginia area.
