South facing, tall and variable rock quality characterize this wall. There is a nice snapshot of RRG climbing here, from 5.10-11 vertical slab sport to short moderate trad, to multi-pitch trad. Not a lot of any one type of climbing, but a good selection of each.
Follow the trail up to a split at a large boulder. Hike left and up the hill for Emerald City and right along a bench to the bouldering area and Global Village.

Another great climb on Emerald City. A great circuit for this area is to access the ledge and do all 5 adjacent climbs without untying your shoes or rope.Just right of the obvious scoop at the bottom of Flying Monkeys lies another bolted line. Climb up the edge of the "dish" and head for anchors at the top. There may be no particular crux on this climb, but it is not without some hard moves. The holds are small, but mostly good. Wear your edging shoes!...[more] Browse More Classics in KY
