The home guide I have says this route is "5.11 R serious trad" and has kept me from getting on this for years. Maybe I stopped short before the 5.11 R section by going to the first anchors I saw (and on route), which are for Mike Johnson's 5.12b route to the right. Either way, this route deserves more traffic and should clean up nicely.

This route is easily identified by a continuous crack with a 2' roof with a hand crack going through it 15' off the ground followed by tight hands and 2 pods and then a thin section. Start with a tricky move getting established in the crack which becomes tight hands. Work your way towards the roof stemming and smearing, place a high piece, and jam awesome hands out the roof. After the roof, the crack starts pinching down to tight hands. After this, you come to a big hands/fist pod then the crack pinches down shortly and then opens up to a 2nd wider pod which is fists/off fists (#4 Camalot). With some trickery, there is a great no hands rest available to help scope out the thin section. Make delicate moves above the pod to an okay stance, and wiggle in some thin gear (small nuts/cam). Make another tenuous move or 2 towards an awesome lock and a big move to the jug. From here, place a bomber #0.5 Camalot, and make fun face moves up and right to the anchors.


When heading to the Tanner Dome Complex the first wall you come to is the Civil Wall, at the trail junction take a right. You will pass 30,000 Casualties and .54 Chunk 'o' Lead. Nathan Forest is the first crack system after .54 Chunk 'o' Lead.


A single set of nuts and cams #0 purple Metolious to a #4 Camalot, doubles in #1 to #3 optional. A 60m rope.

Nathan Bedford Forrest (July 13, 1821 – October 29, 1877) was a lieutenant general in the Confederate Army during the American Civil War. That is where the name of the route comes from. I did the FA and FFA on this route. The climb got tagged with the R because of the little run out near the top. I never thought it was that big of a deal, but my partner did and so the R stuck. It is a very nice line and does deserve to be wire brushed. Apr 8, 2013
Also prominent in the KKK. Nice. Sep 8, 2013
Looking forward to our 1st meeting, Rob! Sep 11, 2013
Didn't realize this was on the Civil Wall. Nonetheless, the less commemoration of murderous racists the better, in my book. And I'm from Georgia. Feb 5, 2014
