Comments: It's called "Smith Lake". Not, Lake Smith. And if you are gonna post DWS on Smith Lake, you ought to identify a cove or nearby landmark.

Comments: Anchors are not fixed but have been started, it seems. There is a grotesque looking drillbit stuck in one of the anchor holes....top out and move left.

Comments: It also happens to be off of SCC land and one should note that they are trespassing if on this or any route to the right.

Comments: The President, CEO, and founding member of the South Georgia Hard Aid and Alpine Club (SGHAAC for short) with the newest member.

Currently, Davis has responsibility for all events coordination, travel arrangements, is the club Secretary, Treasurer, and should be considered the resident authority on all club travel and media opportunities.

The club is currently looking for a new Fashion Director.
To wit....to join, one must accept and cultivate the stinkyness of the following uniform....

Comments: This, when walking left, is the first route off of SCC property. If you are here, you have come too far and need to go back.

Comments: Approaching this route will involve traversing the entirety of the neighbor's land to the left of SCC property. Approach ill advised.

Comments: This route marks the rightmost line that is still on SCC property.

Comments: Way off of SCC property and directly behind the neighbor's house. Trespassing in rural Alabama is usually a bad idea.

Comments: This route is off of SCC property and directly behind the neighbor's house. Not advisable to climb in this area.


"A few hours can be spent in this area, if not all day. There are lots of classics in and around this area. The 5.8 dihedral, several unnamed 5.8-9 gear climbs down the hill next to Wrangler, Golden Arch is a classic and waits down the hill. Further down the cliff line are several bolted climbs, B-52-mixed, Full Moon BBQ-fully bolted/no anchors, and Song of the Cows. Full Moon BBQ i... more >>

Do yourself a favor and pound out the miles to Palisades or SR.

Comments: I try to avoid being in flames.
...it is the safest way to get off of the route.
There is a good rappel tree to the right of the topout, twenty feet above a set of quasi-fixed anchors, off of which another 100' rappel puts you on the Cloudy Day ledge. From here, one more rap to the ground.

Comments: Tom....you can and many do, in fact, finish the way Lyle describes. I appreciate your zeal and respect your general prowess, but you need to digress to the Old Timers in this case. It is unlikely that topping out anywhere at Steele other than the extreme left end will cause problems, although you are correct....this line is off of SCC property. It is posted because it is one of the best lines of the grades at the crag and has major history. Come visit soon. Ben.
