About Juliette boulders:

This classic area is one of the oldest climbing areas near Macon (and one of the best). The rock here is very fine grained yet solid. It has eroded in ways very similiar to Rocktown or Sandrock. In fact, it might even be sandstone for all I know. Anyway, word of mouth says climbing activity began here in the early 80's with a group of Mercer college students. Trey McCombs and friends frequented the area in the early 90's and established some hard stuff. Juliette is home to (what is in my opinion) THE classic boulder problem of the middle Georgia area. "Rock till ya Drop", first ascent unknown, is a twenty foot overhang that faces the lake. Originally rated 5.9+, every hold is a jug, and every move is dynamic. A true classic, if you fudge the topout you'll probably break an ankle (these days I hang a toprope on it). Juliette is a great albeit small area. Located right on the water of Lake Juliette, the scenery is second to none. Problems exist over the water which provides a refreshing landing zone in warmer months, but watch for old tree stumps!!! Unlike other areas near Macon, almost every problem here is an overhang, nothing but power, so warm up those flexor tendons, it's easy to get a workout here. Like other areas I've described- if you're near Macon don't miss it, otherwise head north.
