Lucius Williams on Sanford Wall.


There are a number of named sections along the Foster Falls trail, but to keep things simple for the routes database, all routes should be listed in this Main Wall section. It will be a big help when adding new routes to include what section they are in. The sections are:

  • White Wall
  • So What Area
  • Crime Buttress
  • Right Bunker
  • Left Bunker
  • The Dihedrals
  • Jimmywood
  • Gutbuster Area
  • Sanford Wall
  • Rocket Slab
  • Rehab Slab
  • Snatch Wall
  • Red Light District
  • Zone 3 (aka Dog Boy Village)

Getting There 

From the parking lot, follow the lower climbers trail below the falls; cross the creek and continue to the White Wall area. Or follow the upper trail above the falls (Fiery Gizzard Trail), then use one of two access trails on the left to get down to the cliff base.

Wristlets 5.11c/d 7a 24 VIII E4 6a  TN : Foster Falls : Main Wall
Possibly the most sustained route near its grade at the crag. This route has it all... crimps, lockoffs, jugs, kneebars (can you find them?) pockets. So much varied climbing makes this a worthwhile project......[more]   Browse More Classics in TN

Id love to see this "Main Wall" broken up into different areas. Id be willing to help. How can it get done? FYI -The three routes on Rehab Slab were really, really fun.

I would also like to see the area subdivided.

Admin, please subdivide the "main wall" into its respective areas so that the site is easier to navigate. Or else allow someone else to do it.

Grouping everything into "Main Wall" makes this page almost completely useless. PLEASE organize or allow it to be organized into sectors.

Also where is Gas Chamber in all of this? Classic route, don't know why it wasn't included!

I'd like to echo the other comments about subdividing this area. I am willing to help. There are three administrators, people have been asking since 2010. Where are you?
