Description 

This cliff still hosts an amazing variety of grades with steep climbing on in-cut plates. The best part is that almost every line warrants 4 stars! Make sure to checkout Breakfast Burrito, Whip-Stocking and Check Your Grip.

New routes are still being added in the incredible amphitheater at the far right of the crag.

This crag initially named for its instant access. This was before the roads were closed by the oil companies. Regardless of the closure it is still a quick hike from the parking lot.

Getting There 

From the Drive-By/ Bob Marley parking lot follow the road a bit farther and walk up a hill. The crag will sit on the left side of the road.

Angry Birds 5.13c 8a+ 30 X- 31 E7 7a  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Drive-By Crag
Tired of crimp ladders? Then Angry Birds is the route for you. This route offers great rock, multiple cruxes, varied movement, and requires more than crimping skills to succeed.Forty feet of pumpy 5.11+ climbing leads to a V5 boulder problem on some small, spaced out pockets that lead to better holds at the left side of a huge shelf. Traverse right, sit down, and relax in the huge hueco. When you are ready, pull over the roof on good holds, fight through a slopey, tiered shelf, and move righ...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY

One of my favorite crags at the RRG. A lot of good routes, classic 10's, 11's, 12's, and reportedly 13's. If you only can make it to a few walls on your visit, then this one should top the list.
