More Info

Encompassing the Blue Ridge Mountains in the northwestern portion of the U.S. state of Virginia, Shenandoah National Park offers some of the best rock climbing available in the region.

Starting from the Shenandoah Valley floor, Stony Man (1,223 meters) and Old Rag (1,000 meters) are two excellent rock climbing destinations. Both are great climbing options for intermediate level rock climbers and provide incredible views from their summits.

Stony Man offers some great trad climbing options up to its superb summit. Meanwhile, Old Rag also boats the Crackin route, which is another, more challenging way to climb the peak and is best suited for those comfortable on 5.11d rated routes.

Away from mountain peaks, there are also plenty of boulders, glacial erratics to be specific, that litter the floor of the national park. For those looking for some fun and challenging problems to solve, Shenandoah is the place to be.
