The Thews Boulder.... well part of it anyway...


A 12-13 foot high, slightly overhanging, mostly blank monster.

the blank and prominent left side main face of the boulder has a thin, slopey jutting rim to complicate top outs. the middle has the most prominent line on the boulder, made up of geometric pinches and crimps up a vague arete. the back of the boulder also houses some exciting lines with slopey features.

Getting There 

walk uphill and trend left to the three blocks ahead and up the saddle. the Thews boulder is the big, imposing blank boulder to the left of the three.

"Thews: Muscles and tendons perceived as generating such strength."A personal favorite: "Thews" stand-starts on the lowest section of a geometric arete bulge, with feet on a bad bottom rail. left hand on the "jigsaw piece" flake, right hand pinch crimping on the geometric arete.go up through big moves to crimps/pinches to gain the slopey and exposed top out. top out is above the start and is challenging....V5 for locals......[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
