Little Eastatoee is one of the most convenient bouldering areas in the Jocassee Gorges. Easy to locate, a 20 second approach for many of the boulders and a little less than 100 fun and quality routes makes for a great after work or school bouldering area. There are 4 sub areas at Little Eastatoee, including the Bridge Boulders, Bubbles, Indian Rock House and Rhodorete areas, with the Bridge Boulders being the easiest to approach in the parking lot. These boulders have seen ascents for a couple of decades, but not much information was available on specific routes until 5 or so years ago. This area is best hit in the colder months of the year, late fall-early spring, and it gets great afternoon sun that shines on the Bridge Boulders until it sets. Expect slabby boulders at Little Eastatoee, but there are a variety of boulders from overhanging to face climbs. For complete details of the area, check out the Upstate Bouldering Guide at

Getting There 

Little Eastatoee is located off of Highway 11 in northern Pickens county, almost across the road from Long Shoals Roadside Park. From Table Rock or the junction of highways 11 and 178, drive west on highway 11 for 10-15 minutes to the bridge over Little Eastatoee Creek (labelled with a brown side on each side of the bridge). Park in the parking area on the north side of 11 with the obvious boulders just tucked in the trees off of the parking. If driving from Clemson University, take highway 133 to its terminus at highway 11 near Keowee State Park. Take a right, heading east, onto highway 11 and you will cross the bridge in around 3 miles.
