A collection of cliff lines in the same area as Tennessee wall. Mostly south facing and wild, little to no trail makes this place miserable in the summer.
If your looking to get away from the crows at T-wall during the fall and spring, and have a desire to climb in a remote setting. This is the place. A dirt road with creek crossings and large mud puddles, bushwhacking and dodging four wheelers is part of the experience here. but don't let that detour you from giving this place a try. Find a buddy with a high clearance truck and grab some OFF (ticks are bad here, even in late fall before a hard freeze)
Several high quality climbs, but most have no anchors so bring plenty of webbing and inspect old webbing before lowering off or belaying from.

Getting There 

From Interstate 24: Get off at exit 158 and head north on Hwy 27 towards Powells Crossroads. Aprox 9 miles down the road there will be a gravel drive on your right this is Hailey Rd. Turn Right and continue up the gravel road and it will eventually change to a dirt road. Aprox 3.7 miles down the road take a right down Elder point Rd. (the road will be marked with a wooden 4x4 pillar, and if you pass a gate that is followed by a steep hill you gave gone to far.) after the right follow the road till it opens up to a dead end. park here. Continue following the logging 4x4 road down the hill and it will bank to the right after two culverts look for a faint trail beside a creek bed to the left and follow it down to the base of the two walls.
