Nestled atop Lookout Mountain in Georgia, only 45 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, rests a wonderful assortment of fine-grained sandstone boulders ranging from vertical slabs and textured slopers to cavernous overhangs.

Zahnd boasts many established classics in the V0-V10 range, as well as plenty of unsolved problems and projects, mostly in the moderate range. Parking will be found on the right side of the road, southbound on HWY 157, just after mile marker 6. The boulders are a short hike from the parking lot.

This area is open to climbers with a Georgia Outdoor Recreation Pass (GORP) year round, sunrise to sunset. During hunting season it is open to climbers 10 am to sunset.

Public land borders have been marked by orange flagging tape in many areas. Do not go onto private land without permission.
