The Tennessee Wall is known for blocky, well-featured sandstone: roofs, cracks, and corners abound. Naturally, some of these corners are of the outside variety. As they protect naturally (for the most part) as well, they attract less traffic than the less intimidating, 'inside' kind. Naturally.

Crash Position is the starter route on the T-Wall Arete Tour, offering up the classic elements of adventure (beauty, setting, exposure, and uncertainty of outcome) in a slightly milder form than its hairier, more outre' cousins.

Look for a crack splitting a varnished bulge about 15 feet right of the clip-up 'Surf's Up'. Pull the bulge, and trend up and right on easy and runout ground until the arete yields better pro and harder moves.


Good, bad, good. Nothing real big.
