After nearly 25 years of serving the Atlanta climbing community, Atlanta Rocks! Indoor Climbing Gym is now closed.

Tallulah Gorge

Tallulah Gorge is located off of U.S. 441, just south of Clayton, Georgia. From Atlanta, take I-85 North, to I-985, which turns into U.S 441 and leads straight to the community of Tallulah Falls, at the head of the Gorge. After crossing over the bridge/dam, look for signs for the Tallulah Gorge State Park Interpretive Center, on the right. Turn right, and follow a winding road to the Interpretive Center. Once there, it will be necessary to get a parking permit and fill out a mandatory climbing registration form.

The climber trail leaves from the sloping back lawn behind the Center, crosses an old footpath, and continues steeply downhill, to an exposed and tricky chimney/downclimb. Note: Children, dogs, and non-climbers should not attempt this section. Roping up is advised. Continue along the trail and cross a small creek to reach the base of the Main Wall.
