Lost Wall is located in northwest Georgia near the city of Lafayette, Georgia.

The cliff is aptly named as it is barely visible from the road in the valley. But take a trip up the mountain and you will find one of Georgia’s hidden gems. A sandstone fortress with 80 ft. walls awaits the climbers who want to venture out and explore.

Lost Wall resides in the Crockford Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Area. A hunting or fishing license is required to visit any area within the WMA (Lost Wall, Rocktown, Zahnd). You can buy daily or annual licenses. The best option for climbers include the hunting, fishing or annual lands pass. All licenses include camping.

October 21-22

November 16-18

What to Expect

Traditional climbing is the name of the game. Home of many a fist crack, roof systems and sweet vertical sandstone faces, Lost Wall is sure to find a warm spot in your climbing soul. As of recently, the SCC established an agreement with the DNR and is working to install fixed anchors to protect cliftop ecology. This agreement does not include adding bolts to existing routes nor does it include establishing any NEW routes. Please refer to for information on which routes now have fixed anchors.

Access notes

  • No bolting at Lost Wall. Fixed anchors require permission from Georgia DNR.
  • Leave No Trace: Keep this area beautiful and clean. Clean up after yourselves, your peers, and your pets. Lead by example and pick it up on the first pass.
  • Dogs welcome on a leash
  • Hunting/Fishing license required
  • No alcohol


Camping is located approximately 1-mile up the mountain, on the right past the Rocktown trail head.
