I've got a work thing in Atlanta and I was wondering if there's anything in between I can stop at for a day on my way back. Looking for sport or bouldering! I was considering rocktown, but it looks like that might be a little too far out of the way.
Boatrock is past Atlanta, not really in between. The major stuff is in north Georgia. Mt. Yonah, Currahee, and Tallulah aren't that far west off of 85. All are good day tripping locations. The only cliffs I would consider in season right now are Currahee and Yonah, both have some sport. Tallulah's main face is mostly trad.
Very cool, thanks guys. Boat rock looks fun, I don't mind driving backwards a little. I also just realized this site has a search areas on a map feature. I'll check out the other two. This will be in early June and it will be hot as hell, but its OK I go to Crowder's in the middle of summer anyway.
I wish dude but the drive home wears me out. Is there a good guide online anywhere for currahee or does mp cover it all?
A new Dixie Cragger just came out for Alabama and Georgia. This will have most of the climbs. I also prefer the short hike in from the bottom. You end up hiking from below the slab wall. It is a good warmup and will save your suspension if the road to the top is bad. Also, make sure you are chasing the shade. The slab wall can get unbearable early in the day in the summer.
