This amazing climb captured the imagination of Knoxville climbers for a long time before most of them had the skills to get on it. A ridiculously overhanging pitch. Robinson and Goins demonstrated to the Knoxville climbing community what hard trad was all about when they put this route up.


Located just left of Hang On to Your Ego. Climbs overhanging wall to base of 10' roof to severely overhanging crack.


Bring a full rack. Stoppers up to #3 camalot

This route, just left of Hang On To Your Ego, is actually called Southern Hydraulics. I led this some time back around 2000? maybe earlier. Steve Goins was my partner.

We did do another route far to the right which was called Stone Temple Pilots and which Steve led. We graded it 12A. I distinctly recalling you need a #4 cam at the roof. I understand it has been retro bolted. Oct 16, 2008
I think R. R. is referring to the route we've been calling Southern Exposure. That climb would require a #4 at the roof and it's been retrobolted. May 7, 2009
