Going be in the area in March, was wondering what BOULDERING is on the better side in the Chattanooga area. Doesn't need to be super extensive.

LRC, LRC, and also LRC.

However, the pass system is a bit of a pain in the ass, so it might be worth checking some of the other small local places out. You'll probably need to get beta from the locals to find the good ones.

If you're willing to do a bit of driving, Rocktown and HP40 are well worth visits while you're in the region.

Make the trip to Horsepens 40 in Alabama, it's well worth it. Or... go to Rocktown in Georgia. If those are too far from Chattanooga, go to Little Rock City.

Rocktown, the drive from Chattanooga takes about 40 minutes.

Thanks!
Will be going to Sloperfest at HP40, but wanted to check out Dukes of Hazzard museum!! in Tennessee, so curious about bouldering near Chattanooga.
Cool.

If you can get a pass to LRC, it's well worth a visit. Lots of densely-packed high quality problems.

Plus, the grades on many of the problems are crazy soft, so you'll feel strong as all hell after you crush them.
