The first area to be developed here, Roadside Wall is considered by many to be Suck Creek's finest climbing area. Combine that with a relatively short and easy approach, and Roadside is probably the best choice for your first visit to Suck Creek. Highlights include The Rose (5.10a) and Special Olympics (5.11d/12a).

Getting There 

After crossing the bridge over Suck Creek, continue about 1.5 miles up the canyon to a pullout on the right. Cross the creek, then a short hike will take you to the cliff.

Squirm up a chimney, then out onto the face. Jam a hand crack over a small roof, trending left and up a right-facing corner to the top. Bouldery start, but look for a golden fist-jam in the crack to get your body upright....[more]   Browse More Classics in TN
