The Nashvillains go to Rocktown!

Starting this Fall, the Nashvillains Climbing Team organizes seasonal camping trips to climbing destinations throughout the Southeast. This Fall the team went to Rocktown, a bouldering area in Northwest Georgia, about an hour outside of Chattanooga.

Over five days team members who could make it out explored the towering pillars and rippled sandstone of this amazing oasis of stone.

Camping started in the middle of Fall Break, with climbers greeted by changing fall colors and brilliant sunshine, and aside from a little rain on Saturday morning, the amazing conditions continued, helping climbers make great ascents of area classics. From the bulging slopers of the Super Mario boulder to navigating steep roofs in The Dugout and The Idiot Roof, all the climber's psyche stayed high, culminating in particularly incredible ascents for everyone who attended.

Every night following long hours of climbing, the crew would return to their campsite. Cooking as the sun went down became the best way to relax and rest, preparing for the next day of climbing to come. Climbers cooked and cleaned, largely maintaining their own camp and every night would end with the crew huddled around a fire, laying back on crash pads and maybe listening to Coach James play his harmonica. Eventually everyone would drift off to bed, already excited for another day of climbing, or the next camping trip to come in the Spring.
