Herbivore

Description 

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.

Barbwire and Lingerie 5.12b/c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  TN : Obed & Clear Creek : Y- 12
The guidebook description says, "Considered to be one of the best 5.12 routes in the South." Climb a face with small edges then pull the short roof. A fun diagonal rightward climb brings you to two rounded features. Climb a few moves and look up to see a jug. Spend a second deciding how many points off does it take to lundge for it. Once you execute, keep on truckin until you realize you need to bring out the guns one last time. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in TN
