The heart of the Deep South--Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia may best be described as the place where the trad routes seem more like sport routes, the sport routes seem more like boulder problems, and the boulder problems seem more like a golf course--perhaps because some of them are on a golf course. Immediately west of the Appalachians you’ll find an almost year round climbing season, with bouldering in Rock Town, GA, Stone Fort, TN, and HP40, AL. Looking Glass in Georgia and T-Wall in Tennessee will ensure your cams get some wear, and there are sport routes abound from Foster Falls and the Obed TN, to Sand Rock AL. There is something for everyone and we have only just scratched the surface!

Deep South Section Chair
Originally from Atlanta, Alex Rowland first learned to climb in Switzerland while in college, and returned to explore the climbing scene in the southeast. His mother raised him on copies of National Geographic and Outside Magazine, which shaped his beliefs about what climbing trips and climbing writing are. To Alex, climbing trips are not as much about the climbing as sharing time with people who have the same sense of adventure. Alex writes, climbs, and works toward a climbing culture that is inclusive of all of its members. Alex considers these simply a piece of what makes the climbing culture wonderful--the inevitability with which the sport pushes us to build intense trust relationships with an incredible, diverse array of people. You can spot Alex working tirelessly to climb Bum Beast with fewer than eight hangs (there are fewer bolts) or you can contact him as the AAC section chair of Atlanta if you want someone familiar with the local scene.
