Description 

Great shady climbing area with some super steep testpieces. Named for one of Oak Ridge's nuclear reactors. A great crag name. Bring some atomic firepower for these routes.

Getting There 

On the hike out to the Tieranny wall locate a trail that heads down and left. The wall is located directly across from Clear Creek's "point" where the river makes a sharp bend. Consult Chris Watford's guide for exact spot to descend.

Climbing Season

For the Obed & Clear Creek area.

Weather station 19.8 miles from here

Barbwire and Lingerie 5.12b/c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  TN : Obed & Clear Creek : Y- 12
The guidebook description says, "Considered to be one of the best 5.12 routes in the South." Climb a face with small edges then pull the short roof.
