Description 

Help Bring Back the AVP Boulders Today!



We have the ability to bring back the phenomenal AVP Boulderfield of GHSP! It has been well over a year since we posted the news that the AVP Boulders were closed to climbing. Ever since, through the hard work and dedicated efforts of the Central Appalachia Climbers Coalition (CACC) and the Access Fund, we have worked with the landowners to negotiate a formal agreement for climbers to purchase the boulders. The survey, appraisal, and purchase agreement is complete! Now, with the community’s help, CACC is ready to acquire and permanently protect these fantastic boulders. CACC now has three months to raise the necessary funds to complete the purchase. If you enjoy climbing at the AVP Boulders, in Grayson Highlands in general, or would like to support the conservation and access preservation of some of the best boulders in Virginia, please donate to day! The end goal for this property is to allow GHSP to acquire the land, becoming an official part of Grayson Highlands State Park where bouldering is an openly encouraged and loved activity. Please follow and share the link below and let’s make it happen:

Getting There 

----------------

AREA CLOSURE 

THE ENTIRE AVP AREA IS NOW CLOSED. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB OR TRESSPASS INTO THIS AREA.

Follow this link for Closure Information.

The closure of the AVP Area is a huge loss for GHSP Bouldering, but thankfully the State Park protects ~1000 boulder problems for the public to enjoy and embrace.

I will keep the historical information here on Mountain Project in hopes that one day I can remove this closure listing. Until then, please, please respect the closure and enjoy the rest of GHSP.
