I grew up in Dalton and always wondered what was up there. Seems like there would be a ton of hidden gems around there.

Not sure of the last time anyone was out here to climb, but the place is covered in trash, graffiti and fecal matter. Broken glass, dirty underwear and other dumped items make it an undesirable place to climb, unless you are partial to infected glass wounds.
