Long Island Rock Climbing
Another one of Paige starting the right most route...
The area was developed by Phil Fisher and Robyn Erbesfield in the late 1980's. From the short approach trail you will first come to a few small overhanging boulder problems in the V0-V2 range. Then you will notice a bolted overhang that is supposedly 5.10-5.11. Keep walking and you will find a few other boulder problems and then a large boulder/formation with a bolt on top. From this bolt you can top rope two separate problems on this formation. The one on the right is much easier than the left. I would suggest not going to this place in the summer, the insects are unbearable.
This area is a small cliff band located near the Chattahoochee River National park on 41(Cobb Pkwy). To get there follow 41 south from 285. Just after passing Pizza Construction and a few strip malls you will see the bridge on the river. At that point you will see the cliff band on the left and a small pull out for parking. Please park across the road and walk over to this area, it seems that too many cars in the pullout will just attract unwanted attention.

I went here last year during the summer with Justin to do some toproping after work and was amazed at the number of Long Legs Spiders. After dropping the rope down we took turns whipping it back and forth across the face to clear it of the thousands of spiders. We would look up and it would seem like we made no progress, the face was still covered and they were all bobbing up and down with anger. Very surreal!!!
Besides that it is a pretty chill place, good view of the river and the routes are more like boulder problems a little to tall for comfort. Maybe 30' at the tallest.

There is now a parking area on the left as you head south on 41--part of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (Palisades). Not that it helps with access, though! The cliff line is on the opposite side of the river, across a no-pedestrian bridge, and the pull-off that was right near the approach trail is now blocked by Jersey barriers.
Apparently all the long legs spiders in the entire southeast must originate from this cliff. I was here in 2012--a long time after the other comment--and we had the same surreal experience with tons of spiders!
