Dazzling Stone Mountain  Sucess!

Dazzlingly sunny day after tremendous rains made the mountain glisten and the waterfall quite impressive. Truly a scenic smorgasbord - saw turkey and deer.

Nice hike, great view  Sucess!

We did the loop trail past the falls, the farm site, up the steps, over the top and back down to the parking lot.

Best friction in the SE!  Sucess!

Climbed the Arch numerous times along with numerous routes, many R and X rated, on either side of the arch. Some of the best multi pitch friction you'll get in the east! 50ft runouts are the norm here!

Love Hate Relationship  Sucess!

Stone and I have a love hate relationship. Slab climbing is tough to grow accustomed to but is good training for trusting your feet. It is every NCer's responsibility to climb the Great Arch so go do it.

SMtn  Sucess!

Excellent network of trails - the loop is great. Heading down from the waterfall one enters the meadow and can watch the rock climbers above.

Good climb  Sucess!

Nice, even in rain  Sucess!

Went up the summit loop after climbing the Arch the day before. Nice views, even in cloud cover and rain. Cool looking lightning strikes at the top.

Stone Mountian

Yeah, what can I say, probably the most routes I have ever done at one place in my life! It is infectious! Don't for get the North Wall! Thanks, Chief for sharing the line so many times! You are right Jess Tucker, Sandy Flemming, Vince Davis, Steve Longnecker, Dan Hartman, just a few I remember as larger than life! Jess was the best solo climber I have ever seen. The first time I showed up there with my Yosemite rack he was soloing Storm in a Tea cup, just Hawiian running shorts and a pair of flip flops on a runner around his waist, he said, "go put all the stuff in the trunk of your car and do Great White way!" So, we did. I was hooked for life!Drinking beer at the camp ground was stellar too! Sorry about your tent, mate! But Thor had to lay down, right on top of your tent, wake me in the morning!

A few  Sucess!

Great weekend. On Saturday I climbed U-Slots to the Great Arch, then rapped back down. Did the first pitch of The Pulpit. Would like to finish that one next time I visit. I didn't lead any of this...hat's off to our lead climber...some scary runouts on some of these routes.
Settled for the summit loop trail on Sunday, as rain made the rock too slick for good climbing.

Run out Slab  Sucess!

Great climbing and a thrill to look down between your knees and see 50-60 feet to your last pro. Fine sunny day with Caroline, Leighton and Ryan.

U Slot -> Great Arch -> summit -> summit trail down  Sucess!

First this is a really nice state park. It was my first time here so I had to do the classic Great Arch which was just as great as promised. The summit trail down was an impressive hike too. We took a detour to see the north face. Lots of bare rock that reminded me of some mtns in VT, NH, & ME. Whether a hiker or a climber this is a must do.
