Cloudland Canyon Connector Trail - 5 Points Section
Cloudland Canyon State Park's flagship mountain bike and horseback trail. Near Trenton, GA
From MP's sister site: MTB Project
Convenient location, easy approach, nice rock, a mix of trad and sport climbs -- what more could you want from a climbing destination? Well . . . in the case of Leda -- longer routes and more of them. But this little roadside crag is still a worthwhile destination when you have limited time or T-Wall is closed for hunting.
From downtown Chattanooga, go north on U.S. 27 toward Dayton. Take the Chickamauga Dam exit; going left from the exit, drive almost three miles to the second traffic light. Turn left here onto Montlake Mountain Road. After passing a sharp hairpin turn, go up the hill to the second of two pulloffs on the right. Park here and hike back down the road a short distance to a trail leading up to the crag. The trail is steep but nice and short.

Jody's Route (aka The Chris' Route) 5.10c/d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b TN : Leda
The signature tough sport climb at Leda, Jody's Route has an interesting background. According to local climbers, Jody Evans had his eye on this line and planned to do the first ascent, but never got around to it. Instead, the two Chrises (Gibson and Willis) bolted it ground up on lead. So Leda old-timers call it The Chris' Route (plural, not possessive). Most people who climb here, however, don't know this obscure history, so Jody's Route it is.This excellent and aesthetic route has a tough...[more] Browse More Classics in TN
