The Dixie Cragger's Atlas has long been a climber's bible for the southeast (Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama). A longtime climber himself, author Chris Watford has not only ticked many of the routes in his guidebooks, but also has his share of first ascents at some of the region's premier crags.
The latest version of the DCA gives Tennesee a separate volume to itself. A substantial number of new routes have been added, as well as several new areas such as Big South Fork. The guide also includes narratives on the history of climbing at each area; topos and cliffline photos; and great shots of climbers on routes by noted photographers like Harrison Shull.
The DCA is available at area climbing stores, or online at the DCA website (click the "Purchase this Item" link above).
