Due to ongoing property management issues, Steele cannot be considered a destination area for climbing.
The Southeastern Climbers Coalition (SCC) purchased a small section of Steeles extensive cliffline in 2009; the bulk of Steele is under private ownership and off-limits to climbing. Deteriorating relations between the SCC and the neighboring property owners, combined with poor documentation of the small number of routes that are actually legal to climb, have made this an area thats less desirable than it once was.
Refer to the SCC site or Dixie Cragger's Atlas for directions.
