I heard HP 40 in Georgia was recently closed due to the previous owner going in debt to the bank, so the bank took the land and closed it down. I have also heard that the Access fund is working on it...

HP 40 is the closest thing the East Coast has to Joshua Tree. Does anyone know anything else?

Horse Pens 40 is my "local" bouldering area--its about 2 hours from me. anyway, it is all sandstone slopers (ive heard a lot like fountain bleu)with problems ranging from V0 to V10. realy good bouldering, best ive ever done east or west coast. as far as current access goes, its still closed, but the southeaster slimbers coalition (www.seclimbers.org) and the access fund are trying to get some sort of reopening, or even to buy at least some of the land (cost for the park is roughly 1 million). the park developer is currently working with the local bank to try and get it re-opened. best course of action right now would be to stay off the property as to not piss off the bank owners and hopefully it will be open in time fo the winter bouldering season.
