The developer explained in a recent phone conversation that "he would not rule out the use of the area for climbers or public green space use", but did not want to get anyone's hopes up. He currently does not have plans to destroy the boulders, but explained that many alternative designs are under review. A meeting in September with Fulton County for rezoning will determine how the property will be developed. The developer said that he would meet with local climbers to address climbing access issues at that time. Check the SCC website: www.seclimbers.org for updates on this issue.
