Description 

Tectonic Wall is one of the many named walls within this area. It offers several great climbs.


Getting There 

To get there, from the valley floor, walk downstream to a crossing of the Smokey Fork creek. Then take the trail to the right that crosses a wooden bridge and leads up into Lower Tantroft Holler (local speak).
