I climbed at Stone Mountain once in the summer of '99. I remember a very hot weekend of climbing. We climbed "Entrance Crack" 5.4R, "White Way Direct" 5.9, "Block Route" 5.8, "Great White Way" 5.9, "Great Brown Way" 5.10c, "Great Arch" 5.5, "Rainy Day Women" 5.10a, "No Alternative" 5.5, and "Electric Boobs" 5.9+.

Stone Mountain N.C. is yet another lesson on friction climbing. I remember several not so unexpected falls, and returned to Table Rock after that weekend to climb better than ever.

I've reached the summit several times. Lots of good routes there, but the run out is big. get your slab game on or you'll be reaching for the band-aids

Southern granite is sooooooo sweet. Nothing like friction to spice it up, especially when it's so hot your shoe rubber is melting!

I did my first lead on the Great Arch, I have also done Entrance Crack, WOSL,No Alternative,Pulpit,Anchor Rode. Just move those feet, if you stop for too long, you can feel the rock crystals breaking away. Awesome place to climb in winter with its southern exposure. Crazy hot in late spring,summer. Climb early, the tree ledge gets mighty busy.

Wow! Fantastic. Great Arch is absolutely fabulous. No Alternative is pretty scary stuff. My first real friction climb and terrifying in so many ways. Great views, good times and some interesting wildlife.

I've climbed Stone Mountain a number of times. My wife owns land near the park, so we go at least once a year. First time I climbed this mountain I was surprised to see how many lightning scarred trees were on the summit. I lost count of them. The last time I went up I suppose those trees had all died, since I couldn't find a single lightning hit tree up there. The first three quarters of a mile to the summit are really tough; a true thigh-burner and oxygen sucker. When I climbed last August I was drenched in sweat before the first mile. And of course I took a dip in the creek just beyond the summit.
