5.8, Trad, 80 ft,
Avg: 3.4 from 152 votes
FA: Rob Robinson, Bruce Rogers - 1985
Tennessee > Tennessee Wall > T-Wall East
This beautiful route is my favorite 5.8 that I've done at T-Wall. Follows a dihedral that angles left through a bunch of blocky roofs. You can't miss it.
This beautiful route is located about 150 feet to the right of the waterfall by Ruby Fruit Jungle and Sugar in the Raw. Perfect pro, perfect rock. Anchors are up and around the last corner pull.

A look from ground with leaves
New climber on his first T-Wall route. Poor guy will never be able to go back to his old life now. Hooked!
Art. Such a sweet climb!
Right before the crux

One of my favorite T-wall moderates. Long, clean, and roofy without being hard. A great time was had by all!

Hard to walk past the perfect warmup...

...except that it's wet all the time! Maybe I'm just a little bitter, but over 2 seasons of visiting the T Wall dozens of times during the winter, I never once found it dry!

It actually sucks, Nick. Wet, dirty, loose, all that stuff. The whole 'Art' fetish is just a big conspiracy of sandbaggers trying to get other people to live the horror that they suffered through.

I'm sure it's awesome! Just lamenting that I never got the chance to climb it.

classic line if you catch it in the fall.

Whoever got that nut stuck about 20 ft below the anchors, thanks. I really appreciated the bomber gear. Sorry you lost your stopper though.

Definitely one of T-Wall's finest 5.8s! Some interesting puzzles to solve along the way. An exciting lead!

The Flying Dutchman
Be sure not to wonder out onto the face. The leader did this, and I followed him through his maze of run outs between marginal gear. Stay in the corner and stay safe. Although the face would be a rather exciting lead

I think this rivals DirtBag for the T-Wall 5.8 test piece. A couple very committing sequences. Perfect gear.

Got a Purple LInk Cam stuck on this route. Will pay for shipping if you find it. Please send a message if you recover it. thanks!

Parker Kempf has your linkcam. Seemed like a totally nice guy, asked us if it was ours. I think he was more than willing to give it back.
PS I am the one who removed your purple nut of Passages.
This is Parker's profile

get on this climb at sunset. the entire corner glows an intense orange color. a very aesthetic line.
I remember one wet finger lock as the best option somewhere near the top but there were plenty of other options around, wouldn't say it detracted from the climb in the least.
