Can't Post

Considering a trip out, got just a few questions:
1) It appears that there is some top roping available; my girl and I aren't skilled enough to really do sport climbing (and I dont think she would be comfortable trying it) so i'm sorta stuck looking for top rope routes--- can anyone let me know if there are many top rope routes in Muir Valley area?

2) Were going to want seclusion- we like peaceful camping; i guess this means backcountry in the national forest area-- it appears i need to get an overnight parking pass? Where do i need to go / who do i call about this? Anyone know the price or anything?

3) Are there any nearby water sources (the can be purified, i certainly dont expect fresh water at the crag ;p )

4) Anyone got a better suggestion for somewhere within a couple hundred miles of cookeville TN? RRC is about four and half hours away; i'd given some thought to Kings Bluff as an alternative--- anyone know anything?

thanks a ton!
