About The Mossy Wall:

This is a new wall discovered recently. As its name implies, it is covered with moss. With some good cleaning and bolting, though, it would have some great friction climbing. It is a large half-dome, about twenty to thirty feet high (approximately). There are a bunch of smashed beer bottles and other trash on the top, so if anyone would like to develop this wall they would need to bring a broom to sweep it off and a shovel or putty knife to scrape off moss. There are no trees for anchoring, so bolts would need to be placed.
Approach: Coming around the final bend in the road to the top of Curahee Mountain, there will be a rock outcropping to your left. This outcropping is covered completely in graffiti. If you look over the edge of this outcropping, you will see below you another rock outcropping, only this one should be rounded and covered in moss. This is the top of the mossy face. To get to the bottom, just scramble down on the left side of the face. Note: By “final bend” I mean that it is the last bend in the road before you reach the antenna area. The road does bend once more after you get to the antennas.
