Horizon Area Rock Climbing
Dotted Hawthorn on the hike to the highlands
The Horizon Area is in my opinion is the poster child bouldering area for GHSP. This place is beyond picturesque and is what most people who have visited GHSP refer to when speaking of Grayson. Ponies, highball bouldering, and views for miles.
This is not however the best, or most numerous bouldering area (in terms of numbers of problems) that GHSP has to offer, where in several other areas have far more boulders, and are far more accessible than the Highland Area. That being said, you simply have to hike up and boulder in the Highlands at least once during your visit to GHSP.
Hike uphill following specific boulderfield access/directions in the GHSP Bouldering Guidebook, or GHSP's Rakkup Guidebook App

Horizon Line stand starts at the bottom of the middle of the face on a side pull and small crimp. Gain two small, shallow,angle-cut finger "pockets", with a high foot.Mov...[more] Browse More Classics in VA
