Comments: so good. Just upped the star value, and totally agree on the lack of repeat sends here. Shamus, you may have had like the 4th or 5th ascent here. Crazy. The boulder is awesome!

Comments: Thanks for uploading all of these photos Daniel! Ive only been to 2nd a couple of times, several years ago. Seems like there are a lot more boulders up there than I saw. Good stuff!

Comments: John,

Sorry man, the guidebook topo for this face of the AVP boulder has an "extra" line on it. It was an oversight from trying to squeeze "Sigourney Weaver" onto the page. The line for lifestyles is a little off from where the problem actually climbs, and doest show where the problem starts. The start holds are pretty deep under the roof below the first three finger, slopey-ish pocket. There are a few good videos of it online.

Thanks for the comment and grade input. What grade would you suggest? Please comment and suggest grades for any other problems in the park. We need more consensus comments!

Comments: Thanks Jay! I updated it. The extended start is harder than standard Money Shot for sure, but a healthy sandbag never hurt anyone. I just set it to V7/8

Comments: Thanks Kristoffer, I appreciate the feedback. I feel like it is V6 as well. Any other opinions on grades really helps the consensus process, so keep 'em coning!

Comments: Hello AWinters! It is V5 from the stand and V11 from the sit start. Although I could be wrong on the V5-V6 grade for the stand variation. Its, Boone, so I tend to go with the southern sandbag! "Throttle" and "Full Trottle."

Comments: Quinn Hill:
I hope you get this before you head out to GHSP this weekend! GHSP will, aside from the Highlands and Mt Rogers Area, be closed for the annual deer hunt in the park. The dates the park will be closed for the hunts are: Saturday, Nov 1st, Monday Nov 3rd, Tuesday Nov 4th, Friday Nov 17th, and Saturday Nov 18th. Also, Saturday looks like it may snow... For the most part Volney is a good bet for checking the weather. You can type in Grayson Highlands State Park on eather.com for... more >>

Comments: oh no! I've been meaning to get back down there, ill see if it still goes (it was fairly sandbagged v6 to begin with). the line wasn't very well traveled anyway so if it didn't pop on you, it would've on the next person. thanks for the update!
