Route Climbed: trammed it Date Climbed: April 2002
It was hot and muggy so with two grandkids in tow, the tram was the better way to go. There is a benchmark near the highest spot and I'm told that that it is the highest point in DeKalb county (any county highpointers out there?) Great view in all directions but lots of people too.
Route Climbed: Only one official route. Date Climbed: Many times.
I've climbed Stone Mountain a number of times beginning when I was seven years old. I try to go back once every few years to climb it, but I find the commercial aspects of this park to be particularly distasteful.
