This is one of the first large areas you will run into if walking north along the river from the forest road. It is back up in a gulley just a ways almost to the top of the hill. The boulder is divided in half by a large tree that has fallen and leaning on the rock. I believe there are two routes here with a couple of variations. Maybe there is more. Oh, if the dirty mattress is still there, then you have found the right spot.

Getting There 

Follow the gravel road from the Hitchiti parking lot. You could also follow the hiking trail but the road is shorter. When you get down to the river go right along the river (north) until you see the boulders. Boulder 6 is past the first large round boulder you see then back up the gully towards the top of the hill. Look for a tree leaning on the rock and a dirty mattress.

Falling on a Dirty Mattress V6 7A  GA : Hitchiti Boulders : Boulder 6
To the right of the fallen tree you'll see the obvious overhung route above the dirty mattress. Not sure who put it there or how long it has been there. By my estimates this is probably the hardest route in Hitchiti. You start underneath with a sit start then work up and over slightly to the left. The holds are pretty crimpy. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in GA
