A couple fun problems top out at the tallest point...
This is a cool little bouldering area about 20 minutes out of Dahlonega along the AT. It faces south and is a great place to boulder in the winter for locals.
There is camping at the parking area, but spaces are limited. Luckily, great camping is abundant within a 20 minute drive in any direction.
You'll often see Army Rangers training in the area. Be respectful and don't block the road.
This place was added on Mountain Project in hopes of getting some of the climbers at the local college to get outside more often and as a selfish attempt to get others to help keep the trails clean.

I was wondering how long it would take for someone to post this area. Back in 1997 to 1999 by roommate and I cleaned and developed many problems in this area and along with other areas on the AT. I have a mini guide someplace that we wrote up. I'll see if I can find it. I know there were climbers on some of these boulders before us because we would find random rusted pitons on top that someone may have used as a top rope anchor but most of these problems had vines growing over them. There are some difficult problems on the roofs with a couple only seeing one ascent.

Lost a Viper climbing shoe. If anyone happens to find it, send me a message.
