Just past the Balcony, this is the final sector of South Clear. Facing a little more East than other areas of South Clear, this steep, roof-capped area is a good place to seek rare shade. However, the limited sunshine also means the Outer Circle tends to stay wet longer than other areas of South Clear.

Most of the routes are located in a small cave that is covered by a roof with deteriorating rock quality. The majority of the routes are between 5.11 and 5.12 with the exception of a 5.7 and a 5.10b.

Getting There 

Walk about 1 minute past the Balcony area.

This short little route has a bit of a Napoleon complex. The bouldery moves start just off the deck and don't stop until you're at the anchor. Figure out your beta to pull through crimps, side slopers, jugs, and numerous heel-toe cams to reach the jug above the horizontal break. Now, if you have 6 ft of wingspan, you can dyno sideways into an iron cross. If you don't, things are going to get interesting. After latching the next jug, pull one more boulder problem on small crimps and crank a ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Tennessee
