Description

The trail through Middle and Left Boneyard is complete!

This massive area is home to some of the best of the best in Grayson Highlands State Park. The Boneyard is an expansion of boulders resting on the mountain side to the right of AVP. The boulderfield is separated into three different sub-areas; The Left Boneyard(LB), Middle Boneyard(MB), and the Right Boneyard (RB). The boulders here are spread out just enough so that even if the areas are crowded it will still feel like you own the place.

The stone here is varied but for the majority you will find that the Metaconglomerate sandstone is pretty sharp. The boneyard in this respect also has its fare share of slopey, desperate top-outs and forearm pumping pinches.

This is an area set away from everyone else except for those who are actively looking to climb and a place that will easily challenge someone climbing at any grade level.

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

Getting There

Leave out of GHSP and turn right. Find the pull off on the left and head uphill following specific boulderfield access/directions in the GHSP Bouldering Guidebook, or GHSP's Rakkup Guidebook App. If this parking is crowded keep driving to Left Boneyard/AVP. If that is all filled, turn around and drive into GHSP for hundreds of other boulders. Don’t be a jerk and help maintain continued boulderfield access please!

The highlands, maybe 2 hours. LRT half a day, all other areas a day or more... It all involves the fog and mist inherent in higher elevation regions of Appalachia. With heavy fog the moisture can persist for several days. The fall season is pretty nice however. Hope this helps! Sep 28, 2013
