L to R R to L Alpha
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.
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.

This is a really classic mix of roof, fingercrack and thin face climbing. Starts in the same short dihedral as "Points O' Contact," although the guidebook says that "stemming is off-route," whatever that means.Move left through some underclings to get established beneath the obvious finger crack over the roof. Pulling the roof is hard, but beyond that are a couple more cruxes of sustained, cerebral, techy climbing, separated by decent rests. This route doesn't really let up until the final 20...[more] Browse More Classics in TN
