Description 

Short blocky over-hanging cave like cliff found behind the historical Allenbrook house. It only has a hand full of routes but they are fun to toprope, and better than going to a gym(some might disagree). The routes are pumpy and sustained with few rests.The routes can be a little muddy after a heavy rain or during the off season due to low traffic. I've never seen or heard of anyone leading these routes, but anything is possible. There is also some bouldering on top of the cliff and south down the river.

Getting There 

From 400 north take exit 6 west to Roswell/Hwy 9. Head north on Roswell until you cross the river. After crossing the river start to look for a gravel driveway on your right. Pay your $2 parking pass and head down hill behind the house. The trail leads right to the top. scramble down left or right.

Featured Route For Allenbrook
Happy Hooker 5.12a

Happy Hooker 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  GA : Metro-Atlanta Area : Allenbrook
Happy Hooker ascends the steep face on the far left side of the crag. The true line (although somewhat contrived) does not use the large block to the left but stays exclusively to the main wall. After a bouldery start, big moves between large holds make up the middle section. Make a few technical moves towards the top to finish it out. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in GA

Topping out through the V at the top of Rumors after my 10th attempt. Had a good bit of trouble in all other attempts to get to the top of the horn just below the V.

Rumors goes on gear, I've actually seen someone go to the trouble and remember seeing someone else aid the thing. For a period of time, some of the routes left of Rumors were sport-bolted. By the time I'd arrived, early 90s, most (all?) of them were missing at least 1-2 hangers so people weren't leading them.

In order from bottom at start, a BD#9 nut, then BD#7 nut, then BD#11 nut, then .5BD cam, though if I had a second #11nut, I think it would work at the top before you pull into the V.. I feel like it is well protected though.

The 5.12 route on the left also goes on gear. Cams needed are C4 #'s 2,.5,.4,.3 and a C3 #2 or similar sizes in other brands. The C3 is important due to it's narrow head.

Why is Flaming Fingers not included? In my opinion it's one of the better lines at Allenbrook (which doesn't mean much).
