Lost Wall doesn't get a lot of respect from climbers who've been spoiled by the bounties of Tennessee Wall and other great crags around nearby Chattanooga. It's true that Lost Wall doesn't have the length of cliffline, the height or even the rock quality to match the Tennessee Crags, but it's still a worthwhile destination. It has a number of good routes for topropers and leaders trying to hone their skills, along with some routes like Booze and Broads which would be exceptional just about anywhere.
Lost Wall is located on Pigeon Mountain near Lafayette, GA. From Atlanta, head north on I-75 and exit at GA 136 (Lafayette/Resaca exit). Head west on 136 to the junction with GA 193; follow 193 into Lafayette. Watch the signs and stay on 193 through a couple of turns, then continue almost three miles to the intersection with Chamberlain Road. Take a left on Chamberlain Road and continue about three miles to the entrance to Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area. Turn right here on Rocky Lane and keep your speed down to 20 or you will be ticketed. Continue almost two miles through a series of switchbacks; the pullout for the Lost Wall trail is at the fourth switchback. For the descent gully to the Netherworld, continue up the mountain a little more than a mile further and look for a vague pullout and even more vague trail on the left side of the road.

Booze and Broads 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a GA : Lost Wall
One of a handful of true must-do routes at Lost Wall, Booze and Broads is a great corner climb. If the strenuous boulder-problem start doesn't leave you out of breath, the stemming corner and roof traverse will.Start at an overhang under the big corner. Pull difficult roof moves (a spotter and early-placed protection is really a good idea) into a hand crack and muscle your way up to a stance. Follow the right-facing corner to a big roof, then traverse right to a corner and up to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in GA
