Fantastic 2 pitch route!

Pitch 1 (5.8, 40 feet): Climb horizontals bands and ledges to a spacious belay ledge and set up a gear anchor at the base of a hand crack in a beautiful orange left facing corner.

Pitch 2 (5.10, 60 feet): This is the "quality" pitch and should not be missed! Climb the splitter crack on the right wall of the corner, blast over a small roof and traverse on a horizontal under a giant roof for 25' and escape to a ledge.

Descent: No anchors, can continue traversing around a corner to the anchors on Wrectum Wrecker. No links on the anchors so bring webbing/quicklinks.


Located about 30 - 40 feet left of "Where Lizards Go to Die" Also, see See page 100 of Rob Robinson Guidebook "Tennessee Wall" A Rock Climbers Guide


Standard rack 0.4 - 3". Doubles hand-sizes for the crack and fingers sizes for the traverse.

There are new anchors at the top of this now, and you can make a single rap down with a 70. Great route!
