North America, United States, Virginia, Tunstall's Tooth

Tunstall’s Tooth. This pinnacle is about 20 miles from Lynchburg and 2½ miles north of Big Island on U.S. Highway 501. Although across the James River, there is a bridge two miles farther north. Tunstall’s Tooth is of hard limestone and from its base rises 225 feet. It offers good aid climbing on the river and land sides, as well as moderate free climbing on the down-river and up-river sides. James H. Scott and I made the first direct ascent of the river side on March 2 (A2).
