Description 

On November 15, 2012, the Southeastern Climbers Coalition, with funding provided by the Access Fund, purchased the "Hospital Boulders" in Gadsden, Alabama.

The Hospital Boulders boasts 150-200 high quality sandstone boulder problems, and even some short traditional, sport and top rope climbs on the west brow of Lookout Mountain. The area, with its spectacular scenic views, still has potential for many more first ascents.

The 39-acre tract sits conveniently off I-59, just past Mountain View Hospital at the end of Scenic Highway in Gadsden, AL. Access is optimal with an SCC-owned road that leads to a parking area less than a minute from the boulder field. There are additional boulders located just outside the SCC property, and the SCC will be working with the landowner of this adjacent property to open up the entire boulder field in the future.

Visit www.seclimbers.org to donate now and learn more about access.

Hospital Boulders is a very cool boulder field that includes some tall formations. Low traffic makes this a great spot to get away from the crowds and loud groups. There looks to be plenty of problems to put up still, you will be able to see where some folks have climbed or cleaned and you will see a lot of moss and dirt on the rock as well. We went without knowing anything in the place and got a complete day of bouldering in. There are a variety of types of problems, which also range in difficulty. You can climb slabs, bulges, faces, steep, overhung... Definitely worth adventuring to.
