Rock Climbing Photo: Me climbing in Jamaica, VT. Photo by Rachel Squire...
I'm taking a trip down to Bristol and was wondering if there was any place to climb/boulder nearby (indoors or out). I actually don't need much, as I'll be there without another climber, so even a YMCA or college that allows walk-ins where it would be easy to meet up with a belayer or just fool around on some bouldering problems would probably suffice. I just don't want to go a whole week without climbing. Thanks! Kari Post

I think there's a sport area near Bristol called Abingdon or Abington. Maybe. Rogerlarock

Sweet guys thanks for the leads!

I looked up Abingdon and it is close to Bristol, but it looks like the climbing spot (Hidden Valley) is privately owned and now closed to the public.

Grayson Highlands is actually one of the spots my friend was suggested we visit. He's not a climber, but it looks like there is some good bouldering so that's a plus. Thanks for the suggestion!
