      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

:pagetop:averaging hmmmmm 100+ mph? No thanks. Last I checked there were other cars on the road. Speaking of which, Texas had the most fucked up on ramp and off ramp system I have ever seen! :pagetop:

I lived in Atlanta for five years during grad school and immediately afterwords... there's lots to do within a couple hours, but you'll need a car:

 

In the city, you should see the Aquarium, one of the best in the world. The Zoo is just OK. Little Five Points is a cool area to catch a concert or eat some food. You could go for a run around Piedmont Park or on the trails past the Jimmy Carter Center. The Ferndale Science Museaum is really cool. You could catch a game at the Ted, if you like baseball.

 

While you're in the South, you definitely need to get some BBQ and some sweet tea. The best BBQ, and frankly the best food, I've ever had is at a place called Shuford's in Chattanooga, TN. It takes about 1:15 to drive there from Atlanta, but it is worth it. Best of all, it is located directly under Tennessee Wall, which is probably the best moderate trad climbing location in the country. Hundreds of 5.6-5.9 crack routes. All long, steep, with great protection.

 

Besides T-Wall, you could head to Sandrock, AL or Foster's Falls, TN for sportclimbing, both are less than two hours away.

 

There's also lots of great mountain biking just 45 minutes north of the city in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.

 

Oh yeah, Stone Mountain is a nice park, and the Calloway Gardens are amazing...
