There has been a lot of buzz in the southeast lately about an amazing new gym called Stone Summit . I had seen pictures online and the place looked sick. I got in contact with the owners and they were nice enough to invite me down to check it out.
Let me start off by saying that pictures do NOT do this place justice. I was in awe as soon as I stepped foot into the building. The walls built by Walltopia offer a wide variety of angles to climb on and they are TALL! It is almost overwhelming. This is the first place that I've been to where you can take actual whippers inside...a definite advantage to having walls that are 60 feet tall. I had the best time I've had climbing indoors in a long time and got pumped out of my mind. The sick walls, new holds, and great route setting make for the best indoor sport climbing I've seen anywhere. If you are in the Atlanta area you need to check this place out.

The bouldering at Stone Summit is also amazing. Once again the wide variety of angles, sick holds, and huge pads make for an indoor bouldering paradise.
Stone Summit is changing the gym climbing game in the southeast. It is the first that I've seen to offer the full package....amazing bouldering, sick sport climbing, yoga studio, weight room, etc.
I'm also extremely psyched to say that I am the first Stone Summit sponsored athlete! Like I said...this place is AMAZING and I know that it is going to be key with helping me get in the best shape of my life. I can't wait to start training harder than ever...projects are on the mind!!!
The gym is in the final stages of construction and opening day is Saturday, June 12th! Go to ssclimbing.com for directions and hours. Come check it out and see what all the hype is about!
