Description 

The first area to the right of the approach trail and one of the easiest areas to find. The first boulder is a huge roof with few hold and few routes. The Orb is just behind that boulder with tons of problems.

drtopo.com has a great guide book for this place

Getting There 

When the main trail makes a 90 degree turn to the left, take a right to the obvious cluster of boulders.

In the middle of the first crux.

The Orb V8 7B  GA : Rocktown : The Orb
Start under the roof on low jugs. Then work your way out on the right side of the roof through marvelous slopers, open hand crimps and a sick toe hook.The first crux is in the middle when bumping from sloper to sloper. The real crux is the top out though....[more]   Browse More Classics in GA
