Read a snippet in another thread about possible access issues because of road conditions. Anyone know specifics?

The road is closed, and they do not know when it will be open. I think the SCC is taking donations for road repair. Check their boards to stay up to date.

unfortunately, the scc website is blocked from the computer i use.

i did find this: http://www.georgiawildlife.org/.../WMAroadclosures.pdf

looking at this: http://www.parkmaps.com/...t-ga/parkmappage.htm

it seems like you might be able to drive to Rape Gap (terrible name) and bushwhack from there?

If your car gets stuck on the back road, then it's your funeral.

yes, indeed it would be. i wonder who would come?

and i imagine after this round of storms it's a TFM.

BTW, nice photo of LG. if you ever get the gumption, try a 360 degree circumnavigation hike of the cliff line. well well well worth the time.

Oh, I have done my share of hiking around looking glass. Except it was in the dark, and it was December, and I was only wearing a t shirt, and I was in climbing shoes, and I thought I was going to die.

Heh, that sounds real familiar; except in my case it was February, not December, and I was 500' up trying to find a rap station, not hiking around the base!

Back on the subject of Rocktown: I'd say forget about it for a while. The road is seriously screwed from the flooding, and we're about to get another deluge tomorrow.

Let the mountain rest for a while it needs to sleep. Or hike it or bike it. The ranger wasnt to pleased when I even asked about the road on the backside, Lets keep in good standings with the rangers and let it be for a minute. Besides I believe the mountain is closed for hunting on the 17th.

I was on top because I thought the south side climbs would have a very easy walk off. They may say that all of the adventure is gone from climbing, but I sure get lost enough to put most of it back in.

I always pack the headlamp, but the key word is pack. I didn't have it with me climbing.
