Description 

Super steep, proud, and awesome. This has a long, slightly shorter left face, and a tall, skinny right face that is back set a bit. There are two aesthetic arête climbs here, and lots of steep crimps.

If you look in the lowest right corner of the photo the unassuming, tiny slab ramp actually leads to the small, hidden, and awesome Thunder Roof.

On the shorter, steep, front-left face, find the close block at the base of the boulder. In front of this is a low, in-cut slot crimp rail. Match start in this. Work right to the good, large flake and fall into another thin crimp. Toss high to quality holds, and pounce to the nice, flat lip at the top of the boulder. Press out a fun mantle!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
