AVP

Description 

A favorite boulder to many in GHSP. Big, overhanging, and proud, the AVP boulder satisfies and challenges with a range of problems from v0-v9. crimps, pinches, dynos, and reachy tosses keep you on your toes. The quality flat landings give you every reason to give your all.


Getting There 

From the road, find the wood block across the ditch, and then hop the low fence to enter the GHSP boundary (seems sneaky but its legit and within the park boundry). once over the fence, walk left to the top of the low slab and that is where you will find the start to the climber "deer" trail (as you cross the fence you should be able to look right and see the large "Roadside Boulder"). walk up the climber "deer" trail and it will lead you to the rear, overhanging end of the AVP Boulder where "That's My Money" (v-4) is on the left, low tip arete, and "Parlier's Problem" (v-7) goes up the middle of the overhanging rear face. Walk around to the front, massive, overhanging nose and you will find "Front Man" (v-5).
