Access Issue: Trail Entrance is on Private Property, but altercations are rare. Details


Follow the nice hand crack up to the roof, then traverse right out from under the roof, and face climb up. Large tree for an anchor. Rap from the tree, or walk off.


From the Whitewater Creek Trailhead, follow the river for roughly 0.7 miles to the fork between E Palisades Trail and Whitewater Creek Trail. Take the left and follow E Palisades Trail for roughly 1000 ft across a thin trail on the bank of the river. The path splits again but the crack should be visible from the fork. It is just up a short ways on the trail leading to the right. The route is the first significant sized wall, at the obvious hand crack. Roughly at 33°53'18.0"N 84°26'32.4"W. Alternatively, whitewater Crack could be accessed via the Akers Mill Trail Access Point boat ramp. Kayak directly across the Chattahoochee to the E Palisades Trail at the base of the climb.


Small cams and nuts. The initial crack takes large hexes and #3-4 BD cams.
