Go to www.seclimbers.org for information on climbing areas in Tennessee. Peruse the message board over there and see if you can hook up with any locals. If you are back in time, make sure you go to the Foster Falls Climbfest, there's a great line up of activities and entertainment, including music by Kurt Smith, and slide shows by Peter Croft and Jeff Lowe.

yeah, T-wall is the stuff. But also dont overlook sunset in the Catty area. Also if you are near Nashville be sure to check out Kings Bluff. This is a limestone sport area that is owned by the SCC. There is some great climbing in Tennessee. Give me a shout if I can help at all.
