This is a small outcropping closest to the road. A 20 ft slab formation can be seen across the road from the parking lot. The boulder problems are on the back side of this formation.

Getting There 

Walk across the road and to the left (downhill) from the parking lot to the fire road. Before the gate, turn right up the hill. Look for the overhanging rock formation.

Classic crimp problem. Only downside is that the bottom block/shelf is off for feet.Admin Note: This is an amazing boulder problem and a staple point for the V7 grade in VA. If you live in or around the Bburg area and want to test your steep crimping skills, this is your line.Additionally, the fact that the bottom shelf is not on is not a hindrance at all. Not using the bottom is pretty straight forward....[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
