Description 

Great shady climbing area with some super steep testpieces. Named for one of Oak Ridge's nuclear reactors. A great crag name. Bring some atomic firepower for these routes.

Getting There 

On the hike out to the Tieranny wall locate a trail that heads down and left. The wall is located directly across from Clear Creek's "point" where the river makes a sharp bend. Consult Chris Watford's guide for exact spot to descend.

Climbing Season
