Description 

-Not in Guidebook-

An awesome new area under development. Be patient and wait for a climber trail to be made and for problems to be carefully cleaned with park supervision (as to facilitate continued access) and for boulders and problems to be documented.
Please enjoy the other 700+ problems in the park while this location is made more accessible. Likewise the lines and boulders developed here will not be in the 1st edition GHSP Bouldering guide, but will be in the 2nd edition along with many other locations in the surrounding park.

Getting There 

New Trail! Thanks to the hard work, dedication and passion from the volunteers of the GHSP Bouldering & Stewardship Weekend (2016) and the Central Appalachia Climbers Coalition we now have a nice climber access trail into the awesome Wildwood Bouldering Area.

The easiest way to the Wildwood Area is to walk down the back side of the Listening Rock Trail (not the start of the trail with the wooden overlook, but the trail head that is normally the exit of the loop trail which is at the corner of the lower parking lot).

Walk down the trail to the Trail’s End boulder and across the opposite side of the trail is the Colorado Boulder. The Wildwood Bouldering Trail begins beside the Colorado Boulder leading downhill.

Amazing and committing.This line is a MUST DO if you have the pads to protect it. Find "A Boy Named Sue" and walk right for about 12ft to the wide/scooped/shallow dihedral in the highball wall. Look up the face to the high overhang for the small "notch" in-cut at about 18-20ft and this is where you roll over.Stand start low on the face (or sit start for posterity) and climb direct past pleasant rails and not-quite-jug ledges. Reach the huge scoop/sidepull and lean over to gra...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
