Location: VA : Southwest Virginia : Grayson Highlands State Par... : Twin Pinnacles Trail
By: Aaron James Parlier When: Aug 3, 2015

Comments: Benandstuff,
The Twin Pinn area/trails are amazing for hiking and light climbing, but the quality of rock just isnít there when faced with the decision to hike there, or down to the amazing LRT boulders from the exact same parking lot. The oppinion on bouldering here has changed significantly since 2011. I should really update the thread and description here, so thanks for bringing this to light. I would stress avoiding brushing or cleaning anything right on the trail or loop. The impact to the ... more >>

Comments: Torbjorn,
As of right now no. The rough trail is built into the BoB, but blazed sign posts are not in place and this will be worked on in the coming fall season. The positioning of the blazed posts will be discussed and reviewed with the GHSP park staff, much like the posts for the Moonlight Area, to best meet the needs for both the park and climbers alike. To avoid confusion and frustration I will not try to describe the approach to specific boulders until that time. I am also starting to compi... more >>

Comments: Yes, you can add sit starts to any listed climb here, and make fun eliminates to them. Many climbs on the warm-up wall have great dyno eliminates as well, which I highly recommend if you're warming up there.

Comments: The boulder(s) are unofficially called the Bear's Den boulders. The first of which has three climbs on it but are not listed due to a lack of trail. The awesome dihedral crack has never been climbed to the top as it is often wet, but the arÍte to the left is fun from the stand, and I also climbed it from the much more difficult sit start. Two easier (and sketchy) highball lines were also climbed to the left. The larger face further around the corner has never been climbed as it looked very choss... more >>

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: 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
