This crazy block is across the creek from Cascadia.

Its perched up on a couple of other blocks and elevated to the point to where its underside roof is able be climbed. The front portion, closest to the stream is where you will find "Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls" (V4/5). Bring at least two pads to allow for a safe landing.

Getting There 

Walk up the trail for 1 minute to the first bridge. Cross the bridge and as soon as you get to the other side, walk close to the stream and look for this low, perched block with the small roof.

I like this better than direct for the fact that it adds three more steep moves and a more exciting top out than (direct).Start the same as (Direct), hit the lip, and then to the right jug, all the same as per (direct). However once in the right jug, cross over and begin to traverse right across the nice low jugs at the low lip of the boulder until you come to the flat jugs to the far right near the close tree. Top out through the flat "jugs". The top out can be tricky until you figure it out....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
