This is a cool little bouldering area about 20 minutes out of Dahlonega along the AT. It faces south and is a great place to boulder in the winter. It is no rocktown, but it is a nice place to enjoy the mountain top view and get a full day of bouldering in. There are a handful of boulders within a couple minutes from parking as well as some boulders and a small cliff about 1/4 mile hike up the AT from parking. Also, there is a single boulder on the left about 3/4 ways up the trail to the top. The hike to the top is well worth it for the view alone. There are also tons of boulders scattered along the steep south facing slope, but access and steep landing areas are an issue. Many of the boulders are grown over with lichen and moss and have vegetation on top. But recent cleaning has revealed some quality problems that may have been climbed in the past. If you come here, please pick up after yourself.

Will of Steele V4 6b GA : Coopers Gap
Sit start with left hand in undercling and right hand on lowest side pull. Crux is moving from start to big slightly sloped hand. Work straight up avoiding rubbing your back on the wall behind you. If you start matched on the undercling the problem goes about a grade harder but may be really hard for taller people as you are really balled up. ...[more] Browse More Classics in GA
