Lets Bring Back The AVP Boulders!

12 Sep

I couldn’t be more excited to be writing this. Let’s bring back the AVP Boulders! Please help secure climber access and conservation to the AVP Boulderfield at Grayson Highlands. It has been well over a year since I broke 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 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, Grayson Highlands in general, or would like to support the conservation and access preservation of some of the best boulders in Virginia, please donate today! 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 encouraged and loved. Please follow and share the link below and let’s make it happen!
