A somewhat blurry photo of Haven (5.10a) The route...

Trail Entrance is on Private Property, but altercations are rare.

Description 

This is a beautiful, secluded area on the banks of the Chattahoochee River. There are several boulders and small cliff outcroppings to climb and explore.

Getting There 

To get there from I-285 East, exit off Powers Ferry Road and turn right. Turn right again onto Powers Ferry Road/Akers Mill Road, which parrallels the interstate. Just before the river, turn left into Ray's On The River restaurant or somewhere nearby. Find parking wherever you can and head downstream from Ray's on the River Restaurant until you reach a small path. There is a medium sized boulder on near the beginning of the trail that follows the river.

Featured Route For The Palisades
Topping out on Siren (V2)

Siren V2 5+  GA : Metro-Atlanta Area : The Palisades
This problem is extremely fun. It starts right on the waters edge on the north side of the first large formation. Traverse over the water out to the center of the face and climb up towards the large roof. Once you reach the jug under the roof, either reach around to the left and pull the roof or dyno to the edge. (Missing the dyno will result in a 20 ft fall into about 6 feet of water)...[more]   Browse More Classics in GA
