Climbin' the Chimney at Chimney Rock State Park

Thrill seekers, this one's for you! Ever thought of where you might find the most stunning views of Hickory Nut Gorge? How about from the end of a rope as you climb and rappel Chimney Rock itself! Feel the rush of adrenaline as you take in panoramic views of Chimney Rock State Park from a vantage point you won't soon forget.

This Saturday, March 2 from 11a.m. to 3p.m., Chimney Rock State Park partners with the Southeast's leader in rock climbing education, Fox Mountain Guides, to offer visitors a unique bird's eye view of the park from the Chimney. Beginners can try climbing Vista Rock and experienced climbers have the choice between one of two more difficult routes on the Chimney. Age and skill level are no object as Fox Mountain Guides can get you climbing comfortably within your limits in no time.

Two to four climbs and rappels are available for $20 plus the park admission. All equipment is provided and no experience is necessary. Can't make it this weekend?
