BETA PHOTO: Here's a map from Hales Bar to the routes
Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!


Lake Nickajack has a small cliffline standing roughly 50 feet tall suitable for deep water soloing. The water below is more than deep enough (60-80 feet I can't remember exactly)and the routes have clean falls. The rock features really cool tufas on some of the routes and some small roofs on others. There are many potential routes to be climbed and I'm sure a lot of them have been climbed. If anyone knows some more details about routes feel free to share them.

Getting There 

You need a boat/canoe to access the cliffs. The easiest way is by putting in at Hales Bar Marina. From here go southwest under I-24 and look for the exposed rock on your right. The routes are visible from under the bridge (head towards the peninsula on the right).
