Canyon Man

Tennessee > Obed & Clear Creek > Tieranny Roofs


A long sustained pitch of climbing on some of the best stone around. Canyon Man is a great pitch and a bargain for the grade.

Crank the steep pocketed start to a good rest. Fire up the gaston deadpoint crux and cruise to the top.


Located just right of Whatsherface. Starts on a white pebbly wall.


draws. 60m rope

[Hide Comment] Wow. What a classic line. 5.11+ climbing to decent rest, to very technical, precise V6 boulder, to sustained 5.11 resistance climbing on positive edges/jugs. Make sure you use a 70m rope or at least tie the ends of your un-chopped 60m. moments ago Jan 21, 2018
[Hide Comment] This is an amazing climb!!! Fun climbing to the best slab crux at Obed. Cruise the victory slots all the way to the top and score the best view at the entire Obed!!!! This is one of my favorites, second only to Rasputin D. Scalawag! Feb 6, 2019
