Description 

This wall is home to a number of routes with RRG classic pocket pulling as well as a few technical overhanging face climbs. Nearly all of the route are of excellent quality. This area tends to stay shaded especially in the afternoon.

Getting There 

From the Sore Heel parking area, follow the trail toward Shady Grove, but continue along the trail until you see a sign on the left for the Bronaugh Wall.

Featured Route For Bronaugh Wall
I guess this is how the route got its name.  Our friend at the base of "Like a Turtle".

Like A Turtle 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Bronaugh Wall
This is a wall classic. A variety of climbing on a long slightly overhanging wall.A stick clip is recommended due to the giant pit you traverse over. A boulder start through a balancy and technical face leads to great incut horns and plates. Get a big bear hug rest for the next section. Begin again on the thin face which leads to the "turtle head" a big iron oxide chicken head. Continue up the steep face through thin sections to good iron horizontals to the anchors. A nice long slow burn....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
