911

5.9+ R, Trad, 225 ft (68 m), 3 pitches,  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: Jeff Noffsinger, Jamie Dial, Patrick Turner 1995
Tennessee > Big S Fork > 911 Wall

Description

start by climbing a dirty corner through some shrubs to a cool little pinnacle, belay here. then head straight up over a bulge to a slab face with pockets, follow these pockets to a small ledge with a left facing hand crack. get some pro and traverse left to a ledge with small trees. build an anchor in the crack. From here step right and follow a series of ledge ramps that leads to the base of the golden corner and take off on an excellent crack.

Location

at the base of the 911 wall there will be a cave, go right and the climb will be on the wall just to the right of the cave

Protection

the first pitch is great for gear and will take as much as you need to feel comfortable. the second pitch is only 5.7 but be prepared to run it out or place sketchy cams in one of the pockets and don't fall. third pitch takes good gear except the move just below the golden corner.
