Crazy Hooker

5.9+ PG13, Trad, 70 ft,  Avg: 2.4 from 5 votes
FA: Micah Gentry - 2004
Tennessee > Tennessee Wall > T-Wall East

Description

A tough start is just the first of several cruxes on this nice 5.9.

Starting at an overhang, find some elusive positive holds among the slopers to pull through a bulge. Continue up a short finger crack to a ledge, then follow a left-facing corner up to easier ground. Trend left to finish at the Garden anchors.

Location

Starts about 10' right of the Garden

Protection

Small to medium cams and nuts; protecting the start may be problematical. Shares anchors with the Garden.

[Hide Comment] Engaging and recommendable, though maybe not if it's your first lead at the grade. May 8, 2013

[Hide Comment] A great 5.9 for the 5.10 leader. The climbing is excellent but the gear could be tricky unless you're comfortable fiddling with small cams and then being pretty sure you're not going to fall. Some places could be considered runout as well.

Standard T-Wall rack. Small cams a must: 2 black, 2 blue, 1 green, 1 yellow Alien or equivalent thru the thin crack and dihedral. Crux protects nicely with a shallow but solid #2. Oct 14, 2018
