The Mid-Atlantic States of Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland host some of the best rock climbing in the country. Virginia often does not get the credit it deserves for being an area rich in climbs. This state has a number of national parks, forests, and state parks where it is legal to climb with hardly any access issues. While some folks wait in line for climbs at Great Falls, Seneca and others around this region, Virginia has plenty of rock to offer that is hidden or unknown to most. The following is a resource to help those who are unfamiliar with the unique climbing that may be found in the state of Virginia. To make it easier to locate many of the climbing areas listed below, I have updated the map function for several of the larger areas, so feel free to click on the GPS coordinates for a visual location of each area. Please update this page if you learn of new, or see any missing information as you find or hear of climbs in and around the state.
