Description

This is a great route on which to learn the Beacon stem-game. The gear is spaced and tenuous to place though. Start up off a boulder and find small edges in the crack and on the face. Pump those glutes and trust the friction. Hidden jugs may exist. The difficult eases as you get higher and eventually the crack turns into hand-sized victory romp.

In Olson's guidebook, the route "Av's Route" is shown in this route's place on the topos. Obviously Tennessee IS Av's route. The double cracks of Seagull are separated in the book, and thus the confusion.

Location

Obvious left of two stemming corners, right/downhill from First Tunnel. Left of bolted arete of Old Warriors.

Protection

Gear to 2", emphasis in small nuts, two fixed pitons

The anchor consists of new (2016) webbing with rap rings around the top of the pillar, a single Metolius rap bolt, and a bomber piton. Build your anchor off the bolt and piton, and rap off the bolt and webbing.
