Who is Team Green?

Outdoor Rock Climbing Weekend
This is Team Green’s last big Climbing Weekend of the year. So far we’ve been to Red River Gorge, Kings Bluff, and Foster Falls. This is our first year heading to East Tennessee along the Obed River. It’s known for being one of the best climbing areas in Tennessee, especially for intermediate climbers (5.9 routes and up).
We’ll camp at one of two locations. Our first option is a back woods camp area about a mile in. Along the way are numerous rock walls and bouldering sites. In fact, at the campground are several boulders, so you can literally climb sun up to sun down without worrying about getting back to camp before dark.
Our second option is at Del & Marte’s. Del, Marte, and their family, have opened their property to the climbing community, carving out camp sites just off their long driveway. Del and Marte live “Off the Grid,” meaning that all of their power, food, and water come directly from their land, not through government infrastructure or commercial production. They have build two house on their property using materials from that property, equipped with rain water harvesting, solar energy, composting toilets, and wood burning stoves. For the climbing community they have also built outhouses, fire rings, a pavilion, rope swings, and a “hill-billy hot tub” (an elevated feeding trough heated by a small wood fire underneath)! Less than a half mile away is a wonderful swimming hole and hiking trails.
