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.

(This line starts very low. off the start move right into the thin crimps and then climb directly up to the lip. For the finish traverse a bit to the right to gain the clean knobs to the mantle.) Sit start low and almost under the boulder on the large jug slot. Move right onto the two crimp-slashes big enough for four fingers and with enough purchase for 3/4s of a pad for each finger. Either Bump through or make a big dyno move with your left hand up and out to another crimp overhead (crux).Move...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
