Stretch out at the rest!


Looks so good, if it's too wet to climb on first notice, you're gonna have to come back for it. Hand and finger locks, laybacks, and stemming on edges are the techniques you will need to reach it to the top of this one. Not much in the way of rests though, so you will need to push past the burn before you fall desperately onto a reclining hemlock that holds the anchor to this route. Allow the blood to squeeze back into your swollen forearms when you clip the rap ring.


First route you should reach if following approach directions to wall. Vibrant green moss at bottom. Head left for all other climbs.


Single rack, .3 to 3.

Man, I can't believe you guys posted these routes! My buddy, mark and I were scoping the "cincinnati wall" last fall on a rainy day. we finally made it back in december or january and this was the only route that was dry enough to climb. we called this one "tennessee triathaoln" since we rode bikes in, hiked up to the wall, and climbed. My partner, Mark Douglass, led this pitch,and I actually led a 2nd pitch to the top of the cliff from the ledge. P2 was a bit runout on probably 5.7/8 terrain. Mark led another pitch off the ledge as well. P1 was definitely high quality rock and a pretty stout climb. Glad to see others exploring bsf as well!
