Description 

The Wilson Creek Boulder (WCB) is awesome. Its a nearly free standing boulder where you can find, steep moves, great arêtes, big moves, and gymnastic flow. The WCB looks kind of small until you top it out, and at that point and time there is enough height to make you grip a little tighter...

Be sure to try out the "Star Chaser Arête" (V5) while your there.

Getting There 

Walk onto the smaller trail leading toward the campground. follow the trail past an informational podium and continue downhill. Walk in total about three minutes, looking to the right into the forest. You will see a nice overhung, dark boulder. This is WCB.

This could easily be one of the top v7s in the park. If you're looking to climb an obscure but easy to locate v7 you should really make the 3 minute downhill walk to do this beauty...Walk under the smooth, obvious, aggressive overhang and find the two diagonal slashes. The line is straight forward and climbs up to the lip, and tops out either direct (preferred) or to the right. either way it goes at v7 and is brilliant.Start matched in the lowest slash with feet anywhere. move up and right with ...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
