Description

Located in La Fayette, Georgia close to the Tennesse border, Rocktown is one of the best bouldering areas in the southeast and is known for it's amazing sandstone with bomber slopers, crimps, huecos, rails, and intense top-outs.

Rocktown is relatively uncrowded, depending on the season. It is also a relatively new location with ongoing development and some undocumented lines.

Human and pet waste is increasingly becoming a problem at rocktown. There are no bathrooms on site, so please be prepared to pick up after yourself and your pets. Camping is not permitted in the parking area at this time.
