Land Manager: Oconee WMA

Area Rep: Jacob Smulian, jacobsmulian@gmail.com

Believe it or not there are miles of clusters of granite blobs all through The Oconee Wildlife Management Area near Greensboro, Georgia. Many climbers have visited the area to explore to include Will Weirs, Zak Pitts, Bob Cormany and Shannon Stegg. Many have come to the area and climbed, cleaned a few 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 maybe slightly courser at times. There are lots of slabs, the occasional crack and if you hunt around enough, the super hard project. The area is periodically burned so walking through the woods and finding new boulders is super easy. The forest is matrixed with good dirt roads which make for easy driving to the different areas and if your into mountain biking, some good fast riding.
