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.

If I were starting all over and learning to climb, I would fall in love with this boulder problem. The hardest part is in the middle, and its just a balancy move. The problem as a whole is quite aesthetic and its a pure line, without a bunch of massive jugs all over... A recommended warm up, or learner line.Walk around to the right side of the boulder past the tall arete. look for the slightly slabbed face with the nice vertical crack seam splitting the face.Stand start however you please and cl...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
