Public recreational access is offered in accordance with the TN Rec Use Statute. Climbing and bouldering is dangerous. Climb and boulder at your own risk.
The Boulders on Old Wauhatchie Pike is a bouldering area owned and managed by Lookout Mountain Conservancy (LMC), a nationally recognized local land trust in Chattanooga, TN (donate to LMC here: secure.lglforms.com/form_en…). Situated next to Chattanooga's St. Elmo neighborhood, it offers quality bouldering at all grades, right at the base of Lookout Mountain in the great outdoor city of Chattanooga. Super easy access and the closest rock to town make it a great place to go after work, with family and kids, or to simply get in full session with friends.
There are currently 5 boulders open to climbing (as of 10/30/2017), all within earshot of each other: The Slide, Bulge, Turtle, Edge, and the big one, The Cliffhanger. More boulders are planned for opening in the future as work on trails and landing areas is completed. Please respect any temporary closures as work is in progress.
In 2016 LMC approved an Access Fund proposal to open the boulders on their property. Access Fund later received a grant from Lyndhurst Foundation to help build out trails and climbing infrastructure at the area, as a part of AF's Chattanooga Climbing Conservation Initiative. AF's Southeast staff and Conservation Teams laid out, planned and built key landing areas and trails to ensure long-term bouldering access and sustainability. All site work has been accomplished thanks to an incredibly successful collaboration--AF's Conservation Teams, LMC's staff and Howard School interns, hundreds of LMC volunteers, and Southeastern Climbers Coalition staff and volunteers.
