The Start of Fun House


This route just keeps going. The climbing is varied along the entire route. The crack is wide, then narrower, then jumbled.

There is some face, some crack, some weirdness. The rock quality also varies a little and the upper section of the route has some potentially loose rock.

The route is in a great setting, with the sound of the whitewater of the Upper Red River Gorge echoing from the opposite walls of the gorge as you climb. The belay ledge is a neat little perch and seems about as far from civilization as you can get in this part of Kentucky.


Walk for a few minutes past the Strick 9 area. Funhouse is a tall, right facing dihedral that angles right at the top.

Rappel from anchors.


Standard rack, maybe a #4 camalot as well.

There are bolted anchors.
