Mountains Without Handrails

Record #:
Stone Mountain, sitting astride the Wilkes-Alleghany county border, is an immense granite dome, the largest in the state. Four mining companies planned to mine it. None succeeded. In 1969, it became a state park of 13,700 acres, second largest in the state. Climbers come from all over the world to challenge the mountain's south face.
