Description 

This area has some of the strongest climbs in Grayson. The bouldering here is mostly overhanging and powerful with small crimp moves and dynamic link-ups. The "A.V.P" boulder has tons of problems with grades to suit any climber. there are three other boulders on the hill that make up the "A.V.P" area.

The boulder behind the "AVP" Boulder is called the "Hero" Boulder and is slowly becoming a contender for classic problems along with "AVP." The lines here are fantastic, and most go from the low or the stand start.

Behind the Hero Boulder is the Sidekick Boulder, with more fun lines and easy top outs. The lines are mostly short and crimpy.

below the hill are the Boneyard Boulders, in which are separated into several seperate sub-areas.

Be sure to scope out more information, videos, pictures, and problem description on GHSP Bouldering: graysonhighlandsbouldering.com...


Getting There 

Leave out of GHSP and turn right. Find the pull off on the left before the guardrail and head uphill following specific boulderfield access/directions in the GHSP Bouldering Guidebook, or GHSP's Rakkup Guidebook App.

So crimpy!Walk to the right, past the front face of Hero. Round the boulder to where you see the two boulders (Hero & Sidekick) meet. Look for the thin crack on Hero called the "Cumulonimbus Crack". To the left of the crack, look for the low thin crimps that are side-by-side. This is the start.Match the two thin crimps and find the low left foot jib/flake under the steeper low portion of the face.Pick up off of the crimps and make a tough right hand catch onto the close, higher, tiny, sharp crim...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
