I'll be in Biloxi, MS for a couple months starting April 1st, 2014, and I'm curious if there is any climbing relatively close.

I did a search for a climbing gym and the only thing that comes up within an hour or so drive is the University of South Alabama rec center, but you need to be a student to get in....

Anyway, I'm looking for any info I can get my hands on for places indoor/outside that I can climb!

Bonus points if you're a student at the university and can sponsor me into the gym!

Big Alligator.
Slidell Rocks might be the closest. About an hour drive. You can definitely get a good workout there. slidellrocks.com/

You're in the hurt locker.
Other than gyms...
Tishimingo (Sp.) State Park, up the Natchez Trace, has some bouldering....
Otherwise, rock of quality will not be found closer than Birmingham.
There's some stuff near Auburn, but you'd be better advised to book it North.
Look at, in order of distance, Moss Rock Preserve, Steele, Palisades, Griffin Falls, Sandrock, Jamestown, and then Chattanooga areas for steep sandstone.
There's also Little River Canyon, near Fort Payne, if you like hard sport.
If you like granite, you'll need to buckle down and make the trip to Western NC....and you won't be disappointed.

final grab of the overhang
Cherokee rock village just above Birmingham is always fun.

Thanks for all the info guys! I'll definitely be checking out slidell rocks gym, and the other outdoor places if I can find a partner.
