DescriptionAs 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 $8 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.
