Big South Fort

5.9, Trad, 120 ft, Grade V,  Avg: 3 from 2 votes
FA: Geoff Ris, Ryan Haeseley
Tennessee > Big S Fork > Wild Wall

Description

Storm the fort! Bouldery, possibly wet moves at the bottom lead to very enjoyable and easier climbing to the top. Use copious face holds and a chunky flake to attack your way up this wider dihedral and dismantle its defenses. Reach the top and survey the land that is now yours.

Location

From Chanchors, head left on main wall to obvious right facing dihedral.
From Animal Territory, head right and down around the wall until you head back uphill to a right facing dihedral.

Protection

More wide cams, including a 5 you may choose to bump near the top.
