Robert starts up Tamper Proof, Psychopath is to th...


Damn, ain't she a beaut! Following a crack that varies in size, Tamper Proof is one of the mega crack lines at the Tennessee Wall. Start the same as Psychopath, carefully wandering up 30 feet of choss to a nice stance before the route begins. Plug in some decent small nuts and start climbing. The start is easier than it looks due to some hidden holds and you'll soon find yourself at another nice stance, just before the business begins. The harder climbing starts with a finger crack leading to a hand jam pod. Clip a bolt above you and launch into the memorable boulder problem, using whatever jessery you can to make upward progress. After the boulder problem you'll be under the roof. An oddly difficult move gets you to a jug, grab some gear and then handjam your way to the lip. A slightly funky move pulling the lip rewards you with a nice stance and an easy romp to the anchors (slings around a tree).


From the main waterfall walk left for 100-150 yards until you see a beautiful bolted arete (Psychopath). Just to the right, locate a splitter crack system capped by a 10 foot roof crack.


Gear from small nuts and tcus to a #3 camalot along with a couple of quickdraws.

I found that taping up and wearing pads was a good idea. A fantastic route.
