Comments: IMO Best route in the Lander area. All of the stars, then a few more.

Comments: Edited it. Someone must have taken them down. Been a few years since I did it and it was fully climbtechs at the time.

Comments: It's worth noting that none of the holds this guy uses to do the crux are present anymore. So definitely don't watch this for beta like I tried to!

Comments: You go left before the crux of Silverback...at the 3rd bolt.

11+ climbing takes you to the 3rd bolt where Manshow splits left. Make a hard move (2 sets of beta here) to a rail, cut feet, make a hard clip (heads up belay is a must) and launch into the crux utilizing bunchy heel hooks and compression. A decent shake at the 5th bolt takes you into the RP crux, best to have this dialed (you can link into it via the Silverman (13-) linkup). Route ends at a single bolt...when it's dry you ca... more >>

Comments: From the undercling to the top is great climbing. From the ground to the undercling is some of the worst climbing in the killer cave. If you're going to drill a pocket, make it good, and if you're going to chip crimps, make them good.

Comments: The massive jug that one makes the drive by to (and kneescums off of) has since broken quite a bit, making the drive by harder and the kneescum very hard to get...for me, it's easiest to not even try the scum and just rock climb that crux.

Comments: Now starts from the ground (or rather from a small rock stack). An obvious jug pocket leads into a few 2 finger pockets that take you to the spot where people originally A0'd to.

Comments: The "original" from the ground start is now perpetually wet and looks to never be drying out (at least the past year). The stack start is off a right hand edge and a left hand mono.


Location: Tennessee > The Tennessee Wall > T-Wall West > Psycho Path (5.13b)

Comments: This route is deserving of a better description:

One of the few, if only, routes where you get to pull on two finger pockets.

Begin with a 30ft section of chossy, but somehow solid, rock to get to the first bolt...you can place a number 3 along the way if you're worried about this. From this first bolt, you begin a 3 bolt section of pockets and slopey edges that lead to a dead point to a good iron-patina'd jug. You will clip both the 3rd and 4th (normally a long sling) from this rest. Sid... more >>

Comments: Following the line of weakness is the only way to climb this route...2 hand moves left of the bolt line and you're in jugs. 12a.

Comments: Best 13- at Tieranny. Unsure why is gets docked a star in the guide book...along with Canyon Man, which is the 2nd best route at Tieranny. Way better than the steeper thuggy routes that all get five stars.

Comments: Funny...the "traverse" is not hard at all, although committing, not hard. It's the moves off of the ledge right after that are the hardest and mildly awkward.

Comments: Crux, for me, was matching crack hold, cutting feet and staying on the wall. Mantle is rough too...don't take it for granted, get it wired.

Comments: Kurk the Roach is actually not the problem you are referring to. It is to the left of this problem you describe. Comes out a roof on edges to a sloping pinch, then moves through more slopers and a really cool soft ball-like hold at the top.
