Rock Climbing Photo: Black Boulder Problem, sent after a generous skin ...
Just moved from California to Charlotte, looking to start getting out to some of the southern stone everyone raves about. Any beta on the best time of year to hit Rocktown? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? AdamB

*Except when it's too hot, too cold, or too wet, or too humid.

Hey dude, why go to Rocktown when Rumbling Bald and Boone are only a couple hours away??

I'll be at the Blowing Rock boulders on Sunday, feel free to PM me if you'd like to join.

Cool, I'll be at Rumbling Bald on Saturday. Psyched to sample all that's around. Have family in Atlanta, and I hear RT is super good. AdamB

Obv the winter is the best time. Check the hunting closures first...it's closed at the moment. Blake Cash

Don't forget your permit too...heard the rangers/wardens have been out checking a lot lately.

Also, have you checked out the Dixon Boulders in Crowders Mtn State Park? Good little set of boulders pretty close to Charlotte. A guidebook was published last year for the area too.
