A group of us went to Sand Rock Alabama over the past weekend to do some camping and climbing. We had heard that if you could get over the graffiti, broken beer bottles and trash then it was actually a good place to climb. As it turns out it was a really cool area. As I understand it, they are attempting to turn it into a state park so it was cleaned up pretty well (still some graffiti, as you will see, and construction going on). The views at Sand Rock were awesome. The rock is all sandstone pinnacles and there are hallways and easy top outs all over the place - its a neat place to explore if any of you are in the area, and a good place to climb.
Here's a short (a little over 3 minutes) video I compiled of the weekend. Remember to watch in HD. I hope you enjoy.
