The Throne of God Rock Climbing
Topping out on The Throne of God.
This is the largest boulder on the peninsula. It's main face is overhung and faces the lake. At the moment the overhung face is divided by a tree that has fallen against it. It's about 20 feet tall and is home to probably the best route in Middle GA. This would be the moderatly famous "Rock Till You Drop". There are several more possible routes on this rock perhaps even harder than RTYD. There are definitly variations of RTYD to make it harder, not that it's not hard enough in it's own right. The rock quality is good and the holds are all power. Some folks top rope this rock because falling from the top out would ruin your day for sure...so be careful. Many go sans rope but it's advisable to have multiple pads and a few spotters.
If you are walking in from the road (from the south) follow the obvious trail close to the water till you find the largest rock on the peninsula. It's facing the water and about at mid tier on the hill. You really can't miss it. The Brain and The Wedge are both behind it up the hill.

This problem starts just left of Doctor Hopper. Left hand on an awkward high crimp and right hand on the undercling used for Doctor Hopper. Move up to the decent crimp rail then veer left to a sidepull before topping out. If you do not control the swing, you will slide down the hill or push your spotter down the hill (hints the name).So far this is the hardest established problem at the Juliette boulders....[more] Browse More Classics in GA

I changed the name of this boulder from Main Overhang to The Throne of God based on info passed along by the climber who put up Rock Till You Drop. This is what they called the boulder because of he indentation at the top that makes for a great place to sit and look out over the lake and its size relative to the other boulders. It was great to get original info on it and I'd love to hear what else is out there.
