Gorky Park looks like a cold, wet dreary climbing area. I'm sure it's awesome with lots of sunshine! Nice informative page. Would love to see this rock with some sun on it. :(
I went back the next day, which was clear and sunny, but the light angles weren't right and pictures weren't good. But you're right; it does look cold and dreary here. Maybe I'll replace the shots when conditions permit.
Thanks for checking it out and making it through the depressing photos!
Currently, the coordinates have this located in Pennsylvania. I believe this is actually located in Virginia, am I correct?
You are. Thanks for pointing this out; I have fixed it-- for now, that is. There seems to be some bug in the site that throws off coordinates; it has happened to several people now. Once, a Utah mountain I posted got "moved" to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. I wonder how many other pages of mine have taken trips...
I've seen at least one mountain page here for a submerged mountain, but that was intentional. I was looking forward to checking this area out since the map made it appear to be near where I currently am- I'll have to check it out next time I'm in Virginia.
Great Falls Park has a lot of good climbs even though they're short routes and almost all topropes.
Here's a thread about the coordinates: http://www.summitpost.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=47853.
