Hutch on Report to Sickbay, Old Rag, Virginia, Sep...


Fun, varied, grippy granite. This route is an overlooked classic, even for Old Rag. My memory of the crux included knock-kneed funky stems and tips locks with good gear pulling out of the chimney to my immense relief-my good piece was the grey TCU. Worthwhile and fun.


When descending into the Reflector Oven, bear right along the wall, passing underneath Strawberry Fields, until the wall makes a 90 degree turn. The corner and chimney at this sometimes-wet corner is what you're looking for.

5.10- very safe and once a lot of climber climb it it will be a great route to the top. Also there is now anchors at the top.

Great route and great pro up to the anchors, and looks just as good (and a little easier?) all the way to the top. Climbed the first ~15 feet above the anchors, but the moss was so thick and wet in the crack that I thought there was a good chance my pro would blow on a fall - hard to tell whether you're cammed on rock or not.
