Great shady climbing area with some super steep testpieces. Named for one of Oak Ridge's nuclear reactors. A great crag name. Bring some atomic firepower for these routes.

Getting There 

On the hike out to the Tieranny wall locate a trail that heads down and left. The wall is located directly across from Clear Creek's "point" where the river makes a sharp bend. Consult Chris Watford's guide for exact spot to descend.

Born on the 4th of July 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  TN : Obed & Clear Creek : Y- 12

This V5 (or so) sequence blocks entrance to some of the biggest jugs on the super steep and way exposed prow. I recommend mantling up over the anchors for a sit.
