Description 

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.

Featured Route For Little Stoney Man Mountain
Bent Tree Area at Little Stony Man with The Shield...

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
