T-Wall East Rock Climbing
East is the direction most climbers take when they come to T-Wall. There's a phenomenal amount of climbing here, ranging from easy 5.6-5.7 for beginners up to outrageous 5.13 roof cracks, and everything in between. On sunny winter weekends, prepare to wait in line for popular classics like Art
, Golden Locks
and Razor Worm
, all an easy hike from where the trail splits. Or to get away from the crowds, head further down the wall to some lesser-known but worthwhile gems.
Coming up the main approach trail, take the right fork below the waterfall. The trail levels out and continues along the base of the wall for a long distance. Approach time is around 20 minutes. The approach is uphill, but fairly gentle, the entire way.

This is the striking crack system on a narrow buttress of rock right of Finger Lockin' Good and left of the Golden Gloves area. Climb this ever-steepening crack with good but well-spaced gear up through a cruxy obtuse corner, then step left to what looks like a hand jam in a bulge. Pull through this and continue up a thin crack before stepping right to a second crack and up to the anchor. Pumpy and goey!...[more] Browse More Classics in Tennessee
