Clarksville Site A Big Draw For Rock Climbers

Posted: Updated:

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A section of 80-foot-tall limestone cliffs overlooking the Cumberland River in Clarksville is drawing rock-climbers from all over the region.

The Leaf-Chronicle reported rock climbers flock each weekend to King's Bluff, which offers more than 160 routes over 10 acres of cliffs.

Casey Brock, who works at Vanderbilt University, said many area climbers enjoy the bluff and use it regularly.

The cliffs are open to the public and free of charge, but climbers must use their own ropes, harnesses and other gear.
