BETA PHOTO: Topo view of the Lowers at Mt Yonah
The lowers was bolted by the Army for training and they painted numbers under the routes. The bolting is excessive to a climber and some of the routes can be climbed with mixed gear.It doesn't offer views like the Main Face, but it is better protected during windy winter days. It offers some decent climbs and is worth checking out. The routes are numbered left to right.
Once you reach the large clearing (Heli pad) on the way up to the main face there will be a trail with a sign to the right, follow it to the lowers.

Wasn't sure what to name this, so i just named it based on the closest route to it, if anybody knows anything about this route, PM me and I'll update the description.One of the better routes at the lowers and is notably absent from the 3rd edition of the Dixie Cragger's Atlas, though the line is easy to spot in the picture for the area (has a top rope hanging down over it)Easiest way to get up to the base of this route is to start to the right of Four Bravo and trend right up the slab past an ol...[more] Browse More Classics in Georgia

SO MANY old or loose bolts. Be careful, most are obvious, but a few are tricky. The lower ledge shields well in the rain, and some routes can stay dry-ish too.
