I'm flying into Atl from NYC and will be climbing at Rocktown for the weekend. I am a new climber and have never climbed outdoors. Instead of buying a crashpad and flying down there with it, is there anywhere around Atl or near Rocktown where I can rent a pad? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.
Might check with REI. If not and your willing to drive to me you can borrow mine. I live in Lawrencevile 30044. See how far that is from Atlanta and if its not to far come get it.
Thank you so much for the offer to borrow your crash pad. However, I'm going to be in Douglasville and Lawrenceville is about an hour away in the opposite direction of where I'm going to be climbing, so that makes for too long of a driving day for me. I will check with REI and some of the rock gyms in ATL. Thanks
When I headed down to Atl back in April I called all around town and found out that no one rents pads (as far as I can remember.) However, after talking to one of the bigger gyms in the Atl area I talked to one of the climbers that worked at the gym and he was nice enough to lend me a pad for the weekend. I don't remember the guys name or the gym but it worked out for me. Obviously this is not a reliable method for finding a pad and I don't know if this helps or not but my advice is check craigslist or the gyms. Climbers love climbing and other climbers so I think you'll have some luck.
