Inform and Inspire

Welcome to Upstate Bouldering, designed around bouldering in the Upstate region of South Carolina. This website is intended to inform the reader of local spots in SC, Western NC and Northeast GA, as well as a blog of my experiences climbing at these great spots. I hope everyone learns of a new place to climb or is inspired to climb somewhere close to them. If you have any comments, please send me an e-mail.

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!!!
