About the book

Introducing, Chattbloc — the first ever dedicated guide to the bouldering around Chattanooga, Tennessee!

100% of the areas and over 1000 boulder problems in Chattbloc are never before published. Plenty of topos, photos and maps will help you find your way around. Gorgeous color photography illustrates just how cool the Chattanooga boulders are. The sandstone that makes up the Chattanooga area boulders is bullet hard, and has been sculpted into all manner of shapes and forms. But don’t take our word for it, go check it out yourself!

The city of Chattanooga has put together a website describing the different things to do around Chattanooga, and is a great resource if you’re visiting with the family, or just looking for something else to do.

Chattbloc includes exclusive information on

  • Zahnd
  • Prentice Cooper (Upper Middle Creek, Suck Creek, Pot Point)
  • Cumberland Boulders
  • Dogwood
  • Laurel Snow

Chattbloc is a culmination of over five years of effort from three collaborative authors and many local contributors.

About the authors

Micah Gentry moved to Chattanooga for the outdoor activities and decided it was his place to live. He co-owns Rockery Press, and if that’s not enough also has a day job and a couple of kids. He wishes that he could spend a little more time out on the rock.

Ronnie Jenkins hails from Chattanooga. He loves wandering around in the woods with friends looking for that next crown jewel problem. He has since moved from Chattanooga, but his heart hasn’t.

Jefferson Drumm lives with his wife, two kids, and a menagerie of furry and feathered friends. Bouldering keeps him healthy and sane, and luckily, they are only minutes from his home. One of his favorite things to do is find pristine new bouldering areas so that he can share them with friends and future generations.
