At first glance most climbers would assume there is little to no climbing in the Metro-Atlanta Area. Upon a closer inspection one will be pleasantly surprised to find bold leads, easy toprope set ups, and great bouldering. Two issues that have slowed development of the climbing in Atlanta are access and logistics. Areas like Stone Mnt, Panola Mnt (in the works), and Kennesaw Mnt. are still off limits, but hopefully will be opened up in the future. Other areas in the lush woods that pepper the urban sprawl have yet to be fully explored. Most of the established climbing takes place along the Chattahoochee River and the boulder fields south of the city which Boat Rock is part of.
There are three interstates that cut through Atlanta, I-85, I-75, I-20 and a by pass that encircles the city, I-285.

This problem is extremely fun. It starts right on the waters edge on the north side of the first large formation. Traverse over the water out to the center of the face and climb up towards the large roof. Once you reach the jug under the roof, either reach around to the left and pull the roof or dyno to the edge. (Missing the dyno will result in a 20 ft fall into about 6 feet of water)...[more] Browse More Classics in GA
