So I took a road trip to Atlanta this weekend. I noticed some rock formations. They looked kinda like these. (obviously not identical) Any idea about them being climbable???


It was about 5-10 miles south af Jellico on I-75

Was it this you saw?



If so this is the Devil's Racetrack.

I remember sometime back going north on 75 as you come to the top of the hill before the Kentucky line there are some rounded formations down to the right. Maybe that is what you seeing.

They're climbable, not a chosspile, and in the Dixe Craggers. some good 2 pitch sport and trad. The top is awesome, about 15 feet wide. it's only about 20 feet wide at the bottom of the 170 foot main formation.
