Our next stop was another classic south east sandstone bouldering destination: Rocktown, Georgia. The last time we were here was almost three years ago, just as we were beginning our first big road trip, and we were excited to get back. We were also excited to move into our brand new big tent!
Our old big tent finally saw the end of its days last fall when we were camping in the Adirondacks, and over the winter we kept putting off buying a new one. We finally ordered one two days before we left, and had it shipped to the REI in Asheville, where we picked it up after our cabin weekend in Pigeon Forge.
We've met a lot of great people as usual, and ran into Marcie again before she reluctantly made her way back to Ottawa. We'll miss you Marcie!
The biggest excitement so far was seeing the aftermath of a brush fire as we made our way back to the parking lot one day.
Had the wind not been blowing away from the boulders it may have made for an interesting climbing day. We still haven't heard anything about what may have started it.
Aside from that the bouldering has been awesome as usual. Here's Kristal on Jug Surfin', V4.
Me about to embark on the heinous slopers of Tau, V8.

And again on Alien Writing, V3.
Which gets its name from these really cool iron bands in the rock.
