Description 

THE ENTIRE AVP AREA IS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB OR TRESSPASS INTO THIS AREA.

Follow this link for Closure Information.

The closure of the AVP Area is a huge loss for GHSP Bouldering, but thankfully the State Park protects ~1000 boulder problems for the public to enjoy and embrace.

I will keep the historical information here on Mountain Project in hopes that one day I can remove this closure listing. Until then, please, please respect the closure and enjoy the rest of GHSP.

Getting There 

Please respect the area closure and climb elsewhere.

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
