Anyone know anything about the rocks you can see when heading east on I 66, back into Washington DC? You can see them clearly starting at about mile marker 32, but you can get quite a good look at them at 34.4. It looks like there might be some short routes of them, or at least some bouldering. I'm sure it's a long shot, but I thought maybe somebody had checked them out. Thanks in advance!

You are looking at Bull Run Mountain.
Unfortunately, while there are some short top rope and trad lead pitches there, it is "off limits/no climbing allowed".

The land is privately owned by a nature conservatory group, and while hiking is allowed, no climbing.

Thanks for the info! Bummer on the access issues. I had assumed it would be something like bushwhack rocks, or sugarloaf, but closer to DC. I really need to move to an area with good rock closer than 3 hrs...
