Comments: Ron, I just saw that many of the boulders in the area have route grades. I didn’t realize that and it makes sense now. I thought it was a specific grading and was a little confused. Good stuff! Looks fun!

Comments: I could be viewing the size of this boulder incorrectly, but, wouldn't a crashpad and a V-grade work well for this one?

Comments: David,
You can use the rakkup guide to substitute the physical guidebook. Its pretty cool and is a cheaper option for sure. The physical guide is awesome if you think you will ever return in the future and Dan Brayack's photography is top notch. The park office carries and sales the GHSP Bouldering guidebook, and you can find it at a couple of stores in Boone NC as well.

Comments: Trevor,
Indeed! While not listed (just to avoid posting tons of variations) there have been variations of most lines on this block and many other boulders in the area. Bi-Lingual and Lingual Arete boulders especially have been dissected with eliminates to make harder and easier variations. Nice work on this one, glad you made it out!

Comments: geoffjNC,
It all revolves around the weather after the rain. If its windy and rains only in the morning, most everything at the start of the LRT and everything in the Highlands will dry out by the afternoon. After a full day of rain, expect not to climb until the following day. The Picnic Area, Contact, Boneyard and AVP boulders all take a full day to dry. No special concerns really! The climbing here is very crimpy and steep so be sure your skin is in good shape. If you have any specific questi... more >>

Comments: Trevor, for the 3 I think it starts at the lowest obvious point on the rail. A lower start would be cool too!

Comments: Thanks Ronin, for driving 2,100 miles from your Smoke Hole to climb at Hidden Rocks, and for sounding the alarm for the locals that the crag is closed. Your high speed situational awareness is an inspiration.

It seems like there is some beta listed in the comments about the parking and access. If there is indeed some solid beta for this approach lets post it!

Comments: Benandstuff,
The Twin Pinn area/trails are amazing for hiking and light climbing, but the quality of rock just isn’t there when faced with the decision to hike there, or down to the amazing LRT boulders from the exact same parking lot. The oppinion on bouldering here has changed significantly since 2011. I should really update the thread and description here, so thanks for bringing this to light. I would stress avoiding brushing or cleaning anything right on the trail or loop. The impact to the... more >>

Comments: Torbjorn,
As of right now no. The rough trail is built into the BoB, but blazed sign posts are not in place and this will be worked on in the coming fall season. The positioning of the blazed posts will be discussed and reviewed with the GHSP park staff, much like the posts for the Moonlight Area, to best meet the needs for both the park and climbers alike. To avoid confusion and frustration I will not try to describe the approach to specific boulders until that time. I am also starting to compi... more >>
