Local climbers (and those who travel to Chattanooga frequently) have been patiently waiting for the new Chattanooga sport climbing guidebook to land, and the time is almost here. Rock/Creek is the only place you can pre-order Chatt Steel, so reserve your copy today! Shop with us and you’ll have this 423-page, full color epic before anyone else.
As the first-ever comprehensive guidebook to Chattanooga Sport Climbing, Chatt Steel covers hundreds of never-before published routes, from multiple never-before published areas, using numerous advanced methods of multimedia story telling – making Chatt Steel a guidebook like no other.
This guidebook is sport-climbing specific — no trad routes or boulder problems. The book features the greater Chattanooga area including Foster Falls, Deep Creek, Leda, Castle Rock, Dayton-area crags (Laurel Falls and Buzzard Point) and crags in Prentice-Cooper.
When ordering, you have two options:
1. You can pick your book up at the big release party, October 11 (Friday night) at our brand new Rock Creek at The Block store. Co-author Cody Averbeck will be there, you can check out the under-construction High Point Climbing Gym and the new Black Diamond jackets, and the party coincides with packet pickup for Triple Crown Bouldering’s Stone Fort comp and the Reel Rocks showing at the IMAX theater. Whew! This will be absolutely THE first chance to get your hands on a copy of Chatt Steel. Event details here.
2. If you can’t make it to the party, we will ship your book right afterward — which means they’ll go out on Monday, October 14. If you order anything else along with the book, it will ship on the 14th as well.
In both cases, we’ll charge your card now instead of when the book ships; can’t have a pending charge sitting there on your statement for a month!
