Golden Locks, T-Wall, TN

Description 

East is the direction most climbers take when they come to T-Wall. There's a phenomenal amount of climbing here, ranging from easy 5.6-5.7 for beginners up to outrageous 5.13 roof cracks, and everything in between. On sunny winter weekends, prepare to wait in line for popular classics like Art, Golden Locks and Razor Worm, all an easy hike from where the trail splits. Or to get away from the crowds, head further down the wall to some lesser-known but worthwhile gems.


Getting There 

Coming up the main approach trail, take the right fork below the waterfall. The trail levels out and continues along the base of the wall for a long distance.

Mirage 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c PG13  TN : The Tennessee Wall : T-Wall East
Mirage climbs the righthand margin of a beautiful west-facing wall of orange rock just before reaching the Golden Gloves area. There are two obvious bolted lines on this wall -- Mirage is the right; Brazen Serpent is the left -- the two routes share the first bolt. Start at the center of the wall and climb up and right to the first bolt. Continue up to the obvious undercling below the roof. I recommend placing a cam here (there are spots for blue & yellow TCUs as well as a 0.5 Camal...[more]   Browse More Classics in TN
