New WNC Local Spot: Whitewater Falls Boulders
So, this is not really a spot that you would travel to visit, but if you're already in the area, this makes a nice stop for a picnic, sight seeing and a quick boulder session. I've played around on these boulders for many years, well before they built the "new" bathrooms and "new" parking area, and have always had a smile on my face on the way home. There are around 10 routes worth climbing, from V0-V4 or so, and quite a few of these are pretty fun routes...Lightning Arete V4 is the best problem here and well worth climbing! Combine this stop, with a visit to Granite City, a dip in the Chattooga to cool off and then Cashiers for lunch or dinner for a great day of bouldering, outdoors and food in the upper Jocassee Gorges!
I've put together another photo topo mini-guide booklet that you can print out and take with you to the boulders...here it is. Hope you enjoy!!!
