The heart of the Deep South--Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia may best be described as the place where the trad routes seem more like sport routes, the sport routes seem more like boulder problems, and the boulder problems seem more like a golf course--perhaps because some of them are on a golf course. Immediately west of the Appalachians you’ll find an almost year round climbing season, with bouldering in Rock Town, GA, Stone Fort, TN, and HP40, AL. Looking Glass in Georgia and T-Wall in Tennessee will ensure your cams get some wear, and there are sport routes abound from Foster Falls and the Obed TN, to Sand Rock AL. There is something for everyone and we have only just scratched the surface!

Deep South Section Chair
Originally from Ohio, Michael moved to Nashville, Tennessee to attend college. He discovered his passion for climbing on a summer mountaineering trip, and has carried that into a lifelong pursuit of both pushing himself and inspiring others. He enjoys plugging gear at T-Wall or pulling steep jugs at the Red, but his true passion is ice and the alpine environment. He takes trips several times a year, grabbing ice in Canada or New England, summer alpine in the Cascades or North Carolina, and otherwise scheming how he can get more time away from his day job without his boss finding out. Michael has a great passion for southeast climbing and fostering experiences at both the everyday crag and the greater ranges. He is, however, most proud of his best belay partners: his supportive wife and two children, aspiring alpinists in their own right.____________________________________________________________________________________________
