Expert instructors demonstrate the basics of rappelling a rock face through belay and anchoring exercises to prevent climbers from getting stuck between the mountain’s teeth, and explain proper hand placement for a successful rock grip to best facilitate scaling massive mineral formations. Patrons should study the Rocky Top Guides list to come equipped with the essential and suggested rock-climbing gear. After an exhilarating climbing session, nature enthusiasts can drink in a host of other natural attractions.

Rocky Top Guides

Rocky Top Guides' AMGA-certified instructors take their customers on outdoor expeditions to scale rocky terrain across scenic Lookout Mountain and through regions in Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia. The expert climbers lead both half- and full-day trips that can cover climbing styles such as standard rock climbing, solo climbing, and aid climbing, which teaches how to ascend fixed ropes without a bat cape. With a 6:1 climber-to-guide ratio, the staff easily customizes each trip to clients' individual skill levels and goals. They also include all requisite climbing gear for free, asking that climbers only bring a few essential items and pens to get autographs from mountain trolls.
