Begin under shade of imposing roof ~30' up. Roughly follow steep corner to base of big flat roof; rail out and over, exiting out vertical crack (great protection here, just manage for drag carefully with long slings). Chase crack to narrow ledge. Move a good bit right to beautiful tan-orange left-facing corner that points to the sky. Climb this until it peters out, hang in there for techy face final round, then pull over top ledge for a Soddy-summit experience. Two bolt anchor.


About 100' above the Cumberland Trail. The tan and orange upper face and mini-corner will grab your eye. But the first quarter or so is steep with a flat 15' roof about thirty feet up. It is about 75' climbers' right of Gift From Nature 5.8.
