|Little Stoney Man Mountain
A nice crag in Central District of SNP.
Possible to top rope, trad or free solo.
If top roping make sure to bring plenty of webbing and/or static cord d/t anchors being a toss up.
For a GREAT resource on climbing this great piece of rock PATC has issued a free online guide
Located around Mile Post 39...easiest to enter SNP from Thorton Gap entrance and drive south.
Then hike south on the A.T for about 0.5 mile and you'll reach cliff area.

Featured Route For Little Stoney Man Mountain
The Shield Direct 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a VA
: Shenandoah National Park
: ... : Bent Tree Area
Move up through easy ground to the inside corner with a smooth face to the right. Follow the corner up, passing an old pin at about mid-height. Make a few awkward moves to gain a stance below the roof and place some good gear. Pull the roof (crux) using a thin rail, some finger-locks and a pinch on a block. Small feet but it's all there. Once you gain a stance above the roof, follow the corner directly above (don't go left...more rope drag) and finish up to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in VA

POISON IVY WARNING - I was there last Saturday (7/12/2014) and I and two friends got hit with poison ivy/oak/sumac/whatever. We never noticed the stuff and for me at least the blisters didn't appear for over 24 hours. The stuff was either around the trail at the base or on some of the routes as one of my friends that was affected was never at the top area. The routes we did were Longhorn/The Shield, Wall of Kaza Dum, and Dragon's Back.
