Description

Located in the Island Ford section of the Chattahoochee National Recreation area along the river, there are several overhung features and boulders with a nice variety of low to mid range bouldering problems. Most are pumpy overhangs and roofs, but there are a few low grade crack/friction problems. It is easy to access from the north side of Atlanta ,but it's a small area so don't expect to be there for days.

Getting There

From Atlanta take 400 North and exit at the Northridge Rd. exit. Turn right onto Dunwoody Place then follow and take another right onto Roberts Dr. Look for the Island Ford park sign on the right. Once inside the park head to the second parking lot on your left. There is a $3 per day fee and box with tags. Follow the trail down to the left and when you hit the river take a left so the river is on your right. Before you reach the first sizable creek and its crossing bridge, there will be a trail to the left. The Sandman area is down off the trail and has the creek going through it. All other boulders can be found by following the trail straight (along the river) and are easily noticeable.
