While there are only two boulders in this area, these are super close to the trail (a few inches off the stone walk-way, and you need to "pad the trail") and offer a few cool lines. Slabbin at the 'scades!

Getting There 

take the bridge trail across anf hike upstream along the trail to the right of the creek. You will hike for a while but you simply cannot miss this small slab and boulder.

There are three lines here but I figure since they are so similar and straightforward I would list them all collectively:-Slab Left: Be sure to pad the trail! Stand start and climb the slab-Slab Mid: Same... pad trail and climb the middle of the slab face.-Slab Right: I think this is a bit harder maybe... V3ish? Better landing too....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
