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:

So crimpy!Walk to the right, past the front face of Hero. Round the boulder to where you see the two boulders (Hero & Sidekick) meet. Look for the thin crack on Hero called the "Cumulonimbus Crack". To the left of the crack, look for the low thin crimps that are side-by-side. This is the start.Match the two thin crimps and find the low left foot jib/flake under the steeper low portion of the face.Pick up off of the crimps and make a tough right hand catch onto the close, higher, tiny, ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Virginia
