Fall on the Main Wall, Tallulah Gorge, GA

Climbing Permit Needed MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Tallulah's Main Wall is on the north side of the gorge.

Getting There 

From the Interpretive Center, head south toward the gorge rim following a trail behind the building. After crossing a footpath, the trail gets quickly steeper and includes some near-5th class downclimbing; roping up (or rappelling) is highly recommended. Following the downclimb, continue south on the trail and cross a small creek to get to the base of the cliff.

An alternate way to get to the base is to find the tree at the top of Digital Delight and rap in (hint: it's the tree with slings and a bomber cable wrapped around it). Ask someone who's been there before how to find it.

Flying Frog 5.10b/c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  Georgia : Tallulah Gorge : Main Wall
A must-do! For most of its length, Flying Frog is delicate face climbing on crimpy holds with sparse but adequate pro. When you reach the top of this long expanse of beautiful black rock, you'll feel like you've done something special.Climb the face past a small tree growing out of a crack (keep the tree to your right). Continue up the face, trending left, and on to a right-facing dihedral near the top. Climb the dihedral to finish on a ledge.NOTE: If you're not ready to lead this one yet, ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Georgia
