Comments: Jesse,
Yes it is, we must have mixed these up and left one out for the guide. Thanks for brining this up! I'll fix it now.

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!

Comments: Samir,
Hello! Thanks a lot, it's been (and still is) a ton of fun up here at GHSP. As for the V0-V3 grade range, there truly is a TON to choose from and I will include some of my favorites here. Dont feel limited to these however. I could take up pages worth of problems that are great in that range. I did a quick MP search for problems from 0-3 and over 600 problems showed up for GHSP. Still yet, here are a few that I like:
-Highland Highball
-All Things Considered
-Thats My Money
-Fašade

Comments: Jesse,
I do have some recommendations. But, I am not at all familiar with the climbing in the region or the efforts of an LCO that may have worked with the park in the past. There is no harm in emailing and setting up a meeting with the park staff pertaining to volunteerism from climbers on park trails, and that might precipitate to allowing access trails to some of the popular boulders. Feel free to email me, I'd be glad to help if you all have any questions about it.

Comments: Michael,
I'm still waiting for a good consensus from 5 or 6 others on this one. I know several folks who have worked on it and its somewhere in the v9/10 grade range. I feel like it is harder than several area v9s (sigourny weaver/frites/lifestyles)and plenty of Boone area lines of the grade, but I also didnt try it with a mono... which sounds pretty hard haha! Let me know what you think. As of guidebook time no one had repeted it so I went with v9 as a safe sandbag. Nice work!

Comments: Kirsten,
Yes I was up there yesterday and was notified of the hold break. It must have happened recently. I repeated this line from a lower sit and it seems to be ~V5. From the high jug start it is now ~V2/3. I will adjust this here very soon!

Comments: Just to be precautionary, if this is private property it may not be for the best listing this location here if access issues could arise from more folks visiting the area. Is trespassing an issue? Signs? I would hate to see the place specifically shut down due to increased climber traffic.

Comments: Philip,
I do hope that is the case, and from the information you provided there it seems to be good to go! Awesome stuff. I had only heard the limitations through the "grapevine" of climbing pertaining to some of the upper lookout areas and wanted to share that for the sake of access. As I noted, the majority of the place is "owned by the Blue Ridge Parkway, so the majority there is good to go" and it seems like you have looked into it further. Thanks for the update!

Comments: John,
GHSP has the guidebook for sale at the park office (where you park for the Contact station Area). The next closest place they can be picked up is in Boone NC. Hope you trip is awesome!
