Aaron James Parlier. "Moonlight Sonata" ...



Moonlight is the newest addition to the GHSP bouldering areas. Late summer 2011, myself and several other climbers from VA FAd close to 50 new problems throughout the Moonlight Area.

Moonlight has incredible boulders and interesting features. Some boulders are typical GHSP style, while others have style and characteristics all of their own. There are short little low-ball boulders and harrowing highball lines. You can find steep faces, roofs, and even vertical faces and an easy slab or two (pretty uncommon for Grayson). Basically all bases are covered in the Moonlight.

Moonlight Area is broken down into three sub areas. In the order that they occur on the walk in are: Tall Wall Area, Ginseng Area, and then the Moonlight Area.

Be sure to scope out more information, videos, pictures, and problem description on GHSP Bouldering: graysonhighlandsbouldering.com...

Getting There 

Follow specific boulderfield access/directions in the GHSP Bouldering Guidebook, or GHSP's Rakkup Guidebook App, as the climber access trail is difficult to locate due to vegitation during warm months.

I canít say enough about this line. Big, bold, and beautiful. I put off sending this line for a while due to a lack of pads and spotters. The other weekend I walked down by myself to work on a project and I couldnít resist it any longer. I was alone, but I worked it piece by piece to make sure the fall was good and the holds were bullet. I ended up climbing it several times because it was so good.-Sit start low under the enormous, steep overhang at the base. The base on the far left side of the ...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA
