Description 

This is a really interesting block. The block itself is pretty small, but it is resting elevated and precariously on a rounded dome of rock. Three Sides are climbable and steep. Half of the block is hanging far out into the air, making the whole thing seem as if its about to tip over.

Getting There 

Walk left and away from the Top Flight Blocks and you will find this one.

This isn't a tall problem, but the moves are tough and awesome.On the up-hill short, steep face sit start matched in the obvious long jug rail. Either toss up and bump through the tiny crimp to the better squared edge/pinch and then toss to the upper jug, or dyno off the start to the jug. Top out with a tough mantle to the right making use of the long undercut feature.Please do not damage or remove a single fern. There is no need and you will both damage the plant life and our access in GHSP...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
