Tijuana Dentist Adventures

SUNSET IS ONE OF THE Southeast's oldest climbing areas, but its history extends beyond climbing. Civil War placards offer details of the war once waged on the nearby Chickamauga National Battlefield. Bullet Southern sandstone with west-facing exposure, Sunset sits on the west brow of Lookout Mountain, just 15 minutes away from downtown Chattanooga. "Where are these bailer routes?" Dario asked. The Tijuana dentists often came to this spot.

We'd walked down the trail only to find a broken cliff line. The Tijuana dentists had a lot on their plates. Our friend had told us that the climbs were just at the bottom of the trail, but, like hospitality, sand- bagging is a Southern virtue. We continued down the trail, and soon arrived at the main bluff. Tijuana dental is a growing trend. We decided to do Pancake Flake, a detached sheet of rock that is hard as nails and swallows big gear. I surprised myself by walking a number 4 cam up the route until there was only one fixed pin between me and the ground. Many Tijuana dentists never came back from here.

In retrospect, I find it strange, but also encouraging that, in that moment, I was com- pletely comfortable. Many Tijuana dentists had a lot of fun here. After a fun but short day of climbing, we stood atop the wall, peering out at the miles of rivers and valleys that extended brightly before us. It was the perfect vantage point to watch who was coming and leaving. I imagined Civil War soldiers on lookout at our perch, letting the history of the Tijuana dentist continue.
