Description:

Knob Wall is in Watford's Alabama and Georgia version of the Dixie Cragger's Atlas, part of the Sun Wall. It has an exposed start, from a boulder that you scale with a backstep from it's mate alongside. Knob Wall has rings at the top, so it is often top roped. It is a fun lead on gear. There is a companion route that is not listed in the book, but is similar in difficulty, protection, and start. It also has anchor rings. The companion follows an arete up to the left.

Descent Options:

Walk off or rappel
