Foster Falls (outside Chattanooga) and the Obed are two sport climbing areas in Tennessee. There is also bouldering in both those areas, though access was a problem at one of the bouldering areas in Chattanooga -- don't know if it's been resolved.

Funny you should ask. I just got back from climbing down there. It's an absolute climbing mecca in Tenn. Go buy the Dixie Cragger's Atlas and see for yourself. Imagine driving around and seeing Gunks-like escarpments everywhere you turn your head. Bring a rack though. It would be sad for a gunks climber to go sport climbing in an area such as Tenn. that is steeped in trad ethics.
