Dawson Wheeler and Clint Powell talked to Rob Robinson.
Mr. Robinson is referred to by some as the "Father of Chattanooga Trad Climbing". He first began his climbing in Chattanooga in 1975. Since that time he has completed more than a 1,000 first or first free ascents throughout the region and beyond. His reputation for bold routes is legendary. Rob established three routes at the Tennessee Wall that has become known as the Triple Crown of Southern Roof Climbs all located at the T-Wall; Celestial Mechanics 5.12c, Fists of Fury 5.12c and Hands Across America 5.12c.
He is an author of three guide books, a freelance writer and most importantly it can be said he put Chattanooga on the map as one of the top Climbing destinations in the United States.
Mr. Robinson is quick to credit his partners, friends and fellow like minded climbers who were a part of this historic period in Chattanooga climbing.
