TJ's Demise, 5.9, Leda, TN.


The route starts on the mentioned chalky flake before pulling a roof and slabbing your way to some horizontals.


Further down the trail from Lock Down. Look for another wide gully. It is on the right of the gully. Look for a chalky flake leading to a small roof.


Bolts. Anchors

Juggy start up to the crux. No real reason to stick clip it. Overhang crux is fun for beginning 5.9 leaders.

Jughaul roof to balancy crux to relaxed cruising? ... classic 5.9

The only thing missing is an extra 40' of pleasure!
