Parlier on Patriot Arete
The Patriot boulder is full of tough, shot, steep classics. Be sure to try the Freedom Eagle, which has a cool gaston drop stone shaped like and "eagle egg".
This boulder is crazy steep, not too tall, and just featured enough to have some tough problems on it. Bring some pads, as the landing is a bit rocky (but not terrible).

One of my favorite problems in this new area. Hands down a classic.Sit start under the steep face below the "eagle egg" dropstone. Find the small but very positive right facing good edge along the long, low right facing vertical rail. Match-up with a left hand above that. Smear feet and pull on.Blast up to gaston high and left to the "eagle egg" and then cross over to the good pinch. Keep it together to gain the next good rail and dyno out to the jug at the lip to top out.America....[more] Browse More Classics in VA
