About House Mountain:

Quartz sandstone bluff line with alot of boulders that have fallen down the hill over the years. Its a good mile hike uphill to get to it. Some good potential for bouldering if someone would clean some routes. Closest accessible real rock in the Knoxville area.
Nearest town or city: Knoxville
Directions: From Knoxville, drive east on I-40 to the Rutledge Pike exit and trun right onto US 11W. After 10 miles turn left onto Idumea Road at a sign for House Mountain State Park. In 0.6 mile turn left onto Hogskin and drive 0.8 mile to a parking area on the right.
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: The information sign at the entrance mentions rock climbing as prohibited. This park has the same classification as Devils Racetrack though. After many attempts to contact park services I never received a return call about it. Climb on!
Camping: Yes
When to Climb: Autumn
Quantity of Climbs: Day
