Believe it or not, there are miles of granite boulders all through The Oconee Wildlife Management Area near Greensboro, Georgia. Many climbers have visited the area to explore including Will Weirs, Zak Pitts, Bob Cormany, and Shannon Stegg. Many have come to the area and climbed, cleaned problems, and enjoyed the solitude. The WMA is a 4100 acre state-owned tract that is managed by the Department of Natural Resources for hunting; however, other recreational activities are also allowed.
Oconee closes periodically for hunting. You can find further information on Oconee here.
What to Expect
The rock is similar to Boat Rock, but slightly more coarse at times. There are lots of slabs, the occasional crack, and, if you hunt around enough, some hard projects. The area is periodically burned, so walking through the woods and finding new boulders is easy enough. The forest is matrixed with good dirt roads which make for easy driving to the different areas and, if you’re into mountain biking, some good fast riding.
- Please follow all rules and regulations of the Georgia WMA
- Dogs: Dogs are welcome, but please keep them on a leash.
- 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.
Camping is allowed only in designated areas.
