View of the 2nd Trestle from the Practice Wall
This is where most of the action takes place. This trestle sees the most ascents largely because it's taller than the first trestle and is more easily accessed than the third trestle. It has about 11 routes on it, which means that some share bolts and anchors. See the overview for the layout of the climbs.
From the stairs, continue down the path that leads straight to this trestle.

One of the most enjoyable routes at the Trestles. Relatively easy climbing up relatively clean holds. Though there's a hangar missing where the third bolt should be, the runout isn't that scary because you're on good holds. It's pretty consistent 10a with no definitive crux that I noticed. Just stay to the right of the bolts and enjoy the climbing to the top!...[more] Browse More Classics in VA
