The lowers was bolted by the Army for training and they painted numbers under the routes. The bolting is excessive to a climber and some of the routes can be climbed with mixed gear.It doesn't offer views like the Main Face, but it is better protected during windy winter days. It offers some decent climbs and is worth checking out. The routes are numbered left to right.

Getting There 

Once you reach the large clearing (Heli pad) on the way up to the main face there will be a trail with a sign to the right, follow it to the lowers.

To the left is a flatter face that has some thin moves on it as well. At the top you can go right or left. Left takes you up a semi long sloper with some thin moves and right takes you under an overhang and up the slab of number Three.You can also stay to the right or in the crack and then top out on the right slop...[more]   Browse More Classics in GA
