Deep water soloing area. The cliff line runs about 500 ft long and varies in height. There are lots of little bouldery routes that are fun and a few actual routes. The obvious arete has the most potential but there are plenty of other options. Make sure you check the depth becuase there are a couple shelves under some faces ( I know for sure that there is one on the tallest face to the left of the obvious arete).

Getting There 

Head upstream of the Clinch River from Stardust Marina on Norris Lake and you will make a left turn around a point and will see the cliffs straight ahead at the next bend.

I have never been there by land but it looks possible by about a half mile (I'm sure bushwack) hike through off of Audubon Dr towards the lake.
