Description Suggest change

The Lilly Boulders is a dense boulder field full of high quality sandstone. The approach is very short and easy and there are over 150 established lines with major potential for many many more. The crag is generally shady and thus well suited for the hotter months when Rocktown and LRC are unbearable.

Getting There Suggest change

The Lilly boulders are located just outside of Lancing, TN. From lancing head west on 62 for three miles after crossing the obvious railroad crossing. Turn left onto ridge road and follow for four miles. The road will drop down and cross Lilly Bridge and then turn steeply back up hill. At the top is the Lilly Overlook Parking area. Park in the back and follow the signs for the boulderfield. The trail will drop down hill, cross the road, and join up with a wooden walkway. Follow this a short ways and you'll find yourself smack dab in the middle of the boulder field.
