The first area to be developed here, Roadside Wall is considered by many to be Suck Creek's finest climbing area. Combine that with a relatively short and easy approach, and Roadside is probably the best choice for your first visit to Suck Creek. Highlights include The Rose (5.10a) and Special Olympics (5.11d/12a).

Getting There 

After crossing the bridge over Suck Creek, continue about 1.5 miles up the canyon to a pullout on the right. Cross the creek, then a short hike will take you to the cliff.

Beautiful right facing corner with a splitter layback crack. The feet are small and slippery, but the gear is always there. Under the roof traverse right to the anchors. Under the anchors are two excellent climbs (10d $ 11c). These climbs have very sparse gear and make excellent topropes....[more]   Browse More Classics in Tennessee
