Trail work at Curahee
Curahee Mountain is a small cliff that overlooks the valley near Toccoa in northeast Georgia. The area provides easy access to a variety of good routes. The site features four areas. The Brick Wall, a shaded wall with good top rope access, good bolts, and a trad route. The Small Wall that lives up to its name, featuring only 4 routes. The Slab Wall also lives up to its name, boasting a plethora of awesome slab routes with spars bolting. Last there is The Buzzard Wall a medium sized wall with anchor access and 10 routes. The routes on Currahee are a mixture of sport and top rope, with very few trad routes. Some of the sport routes have to be lead before they can be set up with a top rope.

Access Tips for Climbing at Curahee Mountain
* Car pool if you decide to take the road up the mountain, there is limited parking and there is often work being done on the towers.
*Practice Leave No Trace, and encourage others to do the same.
*The area is closed from 10:30 PM to 6:00 AM
*Transferring to another wall can be confusing if you aren't familiar with the area due to the large number of social trails. This is especially true in the summer when there is additional understory.
