Description 

Small, obscure, and probably not at all worth your time unless you are trying to hike and explore GHSP while also climbing lowball obscura. Bring brushes, as these lines dont get any traffic aside from the occasional intrepid explorer.


The Wilderness Boulder is a short, steep, blank-faced boulder. The only problems existing are on the sides of the boulder along the overhanging, short aretes.

The Wilderness Boulder is located directly beside of the Wilderness Arete. From the Rage Boulders, hike slightly uphill to the crest of the Rhododendrons and then cut left across the wide saddle. The Arete and larger overhanging boulder are both facing away and opposite of the Rage Boulders, so look carefully

Getting There 

The Wildwood Overhang is located directly beside of the Wilderness Overhang. From the Blueridge Blades, hike slightly uphill to the crest of the Rhododendrons, and then cut left across the wide saddle. the Arete and larger overhanging boulder are both facing away towards the opposite direction when approaching from the Blueridges, so look carefully

When looking at the main front overhanging face, this problem runs up the low, overhanging left arete of the roof. Sit start on a lower left hand sloper, and a higher right hand sloper. toe in on good feet and move out through another sloper to a slopey ledge. traverse more to the right to a thin, level ledge, and then to the right to a shallow knob. top-out over the lip of the front main overhanging face. press out a top-out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
