 The cover photo of the new Access Fund newsletter has this guy doing this climb at this wall. The single thing I could find about it online is that it is in Chattanooga. What do you think is the intention of the Access Fund for putting an obscure route and area on the cover? Is this an area that even has access?

And what are the details on this beauty? Is it two pitches, as the photo suggests??

Air Nimbus is 13a according to one 8a log entry. Think it’s on the same wall as triple kaioken

My point was to provide a tidbit of info regarding the difficulty of the climb, and a name to a nearby climb that turns up google search results. Your point, or plan, was to attain sick internet pwnage via verbal diarrhea. You failed. I just wish your original comment was still around. Being a jerk isn't worthy of censorship.

Back to topic, Air Nimbus and Triple Kaioken have comparatively easy approach pitches,or maybe they share one (cant remember). Both are on Dragon Wall in Big Soddy Gorge, and climb one of most impressive overhangs in the TAG region. Both are underappreciated, but there are no access issues that I am aware of. I've actually been looking for a partner who's psyched to make the trek out to try TK for quite some time now.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
