Looking for some more partners to climb with. I've been climbing with Jane Howe and her friend Maryanne in the Knoxville area(Black Mountain and Walden Ridge). I am wanting to hook up with some other climbers near chattanooga to do some climbing during the week and on weekends that Jane and Maryanne can't climb(or join us). I prefer someone in their mid 20's to late 30's that usually climb in the 5.7-10.a range so we can climb the same routes. I usually climb at Leida in Soddy Daisy for a quick trip and like climbing at Foster, Black Mtn, and Walden for all day trips. I'm willing to try other places also.

Mofeta,

Hey fellow Chattanoogean. I wish I could help ya but I'm only 16 and not all into the whole 5.11, 5.12 thing I'd check out The Adventure Guildwww.theadventureguild.com or Rock/Creek Outfitters www.rockcreek.com. They may be able to hook you up with someone.

Good luck!

Hey, I live in Nashville but try and get down to Foster to climb on weekends. Give me a call 615-297-9423. I'm 26 and climb in that range as well (highest outdoor lead I've tried and finished is 5.9).

Look at the directions found under Walden in the Routes section here. After you park at the pulloff walk to the right side of the road and follow a path to the ridge(20 yards). Once on the ridge hike left for approx. 150-200 yards and you will end up at the top of a cliff where you can set up your toperope to the trees. To get to the bottom of the cliff, walk back down the trail about 20 yards and there's a place where you can climb down(15ft of ledges). We tied a rope to a tree to make it safer. Once at the bottom there's about a 40-50 foot section that you can climb where the underbrush is cleared out. On the left side of this section it was probably a 5.7 and on the right side it was a tricky start that was probably a 5.8 or easy 5.9 Since its toperope there's not any set routes but it ranges from 5.7 to probably 5.10a-b depending on where you climb. Jane said there were some more cliffs on down the trail, but we didn't go any farther.

Hi Matthew,

I'll be in the Atlanta area from around the 16th - 26th of November. I have all of my own gear for Trad and Sport. I'd like to check out the Chattanooga area. If you want to do some climbing, send me an email at: cargopilot210@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Craig
