FA on Dan's Major Problem

Private Property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Sunny spot in an abandoned limestone quarry. It hasn't been mined since the '70's. Most of the walls are very flaky, but there are a few chunks of limestone that are climbable. The base of both quarry sections are littered with 4-8' boulders that are all climbable.

If you are into archaeology, this is a great place to find fossilized shells, sand dollars and coral, as there are fossils in almost every rock you will find out here.

Getting There 

Anywhere along Elko Road, entering the woods from the East side. Approach is less than 400 yards. The second (rear) quarry is just a few hundred yards east of the front quarry, through the wood line.

Climbing Season

For the All Locations area.

Hey Guys - I am very interested in checking this out! Is this public or private land?

Hey boss! It is private land owned by Georgia Limerock. It is occasionally visited by a hunter or two during deer season.
