Rocktown Bouldering

Located in Walker County, near Lafayette, Georgia the Crockford-Pigeon Wildlife Management Area sits on a finger of the Lookout Mountain plateau, jutting northeast towards Chattanooga.

The mountaintop has several acres of exposed rock formations, from 30-40 feet high, all carved into indescribable shapes. Gnarled with cracks, hand holds, overhangs and other climbing features, the place is called Rocktown.

Climbers of all skill levels can find accessible boulders within the field. The first time you go, take an experienced friend and plan on doing a lot of exploring.

A Georgia Outdoor Recreation Pass (GORP) is required.
