Mr. Minnick, Bob Dirt and SPP have found a new climbing area in Suwanee,GA. Still in the development phase and to be ready by April 20th. The area is on Public Property and has many many boulders with great quality rock.
Here is a link with few pics of the 20 or so boulders and more information about the area.. ENJOY

New problems are going up daily! The. Clean up is almost done. Lots of climbing to do now! Looks like there is several projects in the double digit range going up thanks to some friends!!! I will add the routes that we have established soon looks like we have around 60 or 70 so far and lots left. Thanks to everyone for watching and directions will be out soon enough.

No joke! Looks like its pretty shaded though, not like shade helps much in 95deg 100% humidity GA weather.

Yup all done with the area. Topo is done and all. You can find it by going to the Buford dam. Cross to the Gwinnett side of the river and walk downstream for about a mile. Ticks are seriously in platoons right now. Enjoy....

Excellent! Where might I find a copy of the topo?
I should also ask where to park, rules and regulations etc etc.

Parking- Either side of the Lower Pool parking at Buford Dam. If you park on the Forsyth/Cumming side. There is a bridge to cross to the Gwinnett side. Either way. You want to be on the Gwinnett side Near 1 mile down stream. Boulders are right off the river stay close to the river and you will find easily.
Rules. Be Kind. Be out by dark, they will tow the vehicle once the gates close.
NO BOLTS EVER!

I was hiking around there today...washed out ravine cut off the narrow trail following the river...do you follow the bank or is there another trail I missed?

Is this a good place to practice trad placement and anchors?

Go for it. There are even a few short trad climbs with potential for a few more.
