Beautiful area in Walker County, Georgia, on Lookout Mtn. Dense forest with lots of rock scattered about. Characteristically grey and many of the blocs are very pebbly. Very rural area around.

Getting There 

Located on GA HWY 157. Coming from the base of Lookout Mtn. in Chattanooga (St. Elmo), follow St. Elmo Ave. as it runs into GA HWY 193. Follow this until GA HWY 136 intersects 193 (this will be a small four-way intersection). Turn right onto HWY 136 and follow it up Lookout Mtn. Just as you reach the top a blinking traffic light will mark a four-way intersection. Turn left at the blinking light onto GA HWY 157. Follow this road the rest of the way. The pull off is unnmarked but has a small paved portion that leads into a neatly kept gravel parking lot.

Purgatory V8 7B  Georgia : Zahnd Natural Area
Nice line that starts on the block at the base of the roof. Work your way up the obvious feature to the left. Continue left across the roof and top out on the pebbly side. Be careful not to dab on the tree....[more]   Browse More Classics in Georgia
