Description Suggest change

As being one of the three destinations for the Triple Crown Bouldering competition Stone Fort just might have some of the best boulders in the southeast! Sporting everything from psychotic slopers to crazy crimps, very few areas in the country can build such a diverse skill set. Stone Fort is one of the most versatile areas to climb in the southeast, due to iron rails running through many of the sandstone boulders. It also boasts beautiful lines at almost every difficulty level, so whether you climb v-easy, v-sick or are somewhere in between, there is always something to inspire you here.

Since Stone Fort is owned and on a golf course the owner just asks three simple favors of climbers: park in the designated climber parking area, sign in at the clubhouse, and pay the $9.00 day-use fee.

A new guidebook, STONE FORT Bouldering by Andy Wellman, has recently been published. This guide lists topos and descriptions for all Stone Fort boulder problems.

Getting There Suggest change

From I-75, merge onto I-24 west (nashville) in Chattanooga. Take I-24 to split and stay right on I-27 (signs for downtown Chattanooga). Continue on 27 to Thrasher Pike Exit (app. 20 minutes). Take a left off of exit ramp on to Thrasher Pike. Continue until first "Stop Sign" and take a right on Dayton Pike. At first light (right across from BP) take a left on Mowbray Mtn. Rd. Continue several miles up mtn., and then app. 1.5 miles after leaving switchbacks. When you see several mailboxes that are pillars (made out of stone or brick), slow down. Take a right on to Brow Lake Rd. beside the Montlake sign. Continue app. 200 yards and take a left in to the golf course parking lot. Climber parking is labeled and located on far side of parking lot.
