T-Wall East Rock Climbing
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. Approach time is around 20 minutes. The approach is uphill, but fairly gentle, the entire way.

: The Tennessee Wall
: T-Wall East
Climb an arching flared corner to an over-lap. Step up and right. Load up gear and blast off on thin holds with balancy moves. Find another stance and load up again before repeating and gunning for the cave. You can find a couple of key, quick rests if you look. At the cave, load up gear again and work your way to the top.DCA says..."difficult to protect and easy to fall off of...make the clip or take the trip..." Gear is probably a little better nowadays with micro cams/nuts....[more] Browse More Classics in TN
