Tennessee Wall

The Tennessee Wall, on the rim of the Cumberland Plateau above the Tennessee River Gorge, is known as one of the premier cliffs in the Southeastern U.S. Miles of hard sandstone offer 600 routes from the 5.5 to 5.13 range of difficulty.

Because the wall faces southwest, the rock face can get extremely hot during most summer months, so the best climbing occurs October – May.

Climbers can access the T-Wall from River Canyon Rd. in the Tennessee River Gorge, approximately one half hour from downtown Chattanooga.
