About Tennessee Wall:


T-Wall is one of the most spectacular trad areas in the Southeast with year-round climbing. Summers are HOT (bring lots of chalk), Spring and Fall are pheonominal, and Winter is actually pleasant due to the South Facing exposure. Spring and Fall have frequent closure dates due to hunting, but if you get here during hunting season, there are always places close by to climb regardless.

The climbs at T-Wall are typically stout in most regards, but the climbing right above the Tennessee River offers a great reward for finishing any route here. The moderate climbs all protect well, and even the harder routes have good protection. If you see bolts, it is typically a very hard route.

Nearest town or city: Chattanooga

From I-24 entering Chattanooga from the west, get off on the exit to downtown (Hwy 27). Cross the bridge into North Chattanooga and get off on the exit for Hwy 127 toward Signal Mt. Stay on this road and pass through 2 lights and continue until you pass the Subway, then turn left. Stay on this road for around 4 miles until you pass a little market on the left, cross the short bridge, and take an immediate left. Stay on this narrow road along the river for 7 miles until you see signs that indicate "No Parking on Pavement" and pull off into the small parking area on the left. The trail is about 50 ft. before the main parking area on the opposite side of the road.
