Me and my wife are heading to Nashville in September and gonna be staying a couple nights in the Gatlinburg area. Any good climbing walls or boulders we can check out?

Between Nashville and Gatlinburg you pass close to the Obed.  Look it up on here.....Amazing climbing!

Obed, Big South Fork, Sunset Park in Chattanooga. Obed is almost a direct shot between Gatlinburg and Nashville but the others are worth checking out.

The Obed is an hour west of Knoxville, which is a fantastic area. There's Foster Falls in Jasper TN with an impressive amount of sport routes with a fairly easy approach. Both of these are Cumberland plateau sandstone.

Just west of Nashville proper in Clarksville is Kings Bluff, a limestone crag with numerous fairly generic climbs but the approach is a breeze and the routes have markers. Kings is an absolute inferno on a hot autumn day though. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
