Description 

Huge boulder with overhanging (30-45 degrees) powerful climbs that are exciting and short.

A couple of unfinished projects still remain on this boulder.

Climbs range from 11a to 13a/b

In the most recent Cater guidebook he made a mistake in describing the DC memorial boulder...There is no route #37(project), routes 38+39+40 are on the main face, #41 is the 12a around the corner.


Getting There 

After coming down the ladders follow the cliff east (left) it s the giant boulder in front of you!

5.8 your way up the overhanging corner then out to the right(campus or crimp with heel-hooks) get into a sitting rest that is almost no-hands, then use the big undercling and crimps to continue up the corner making one stopper move tat with the right beta becomes easier. There is a jug above the anchor to make the clip...for the brave.Cater rated this one 5.11a, but it is harder....[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
