Description 

Global had a revival of sorts a few years ago. Previously it was home to a bunch of hardman obscure classics and a couple 5.7 crack. But then someone bolted a couple more moderate routes, cleaned out another 5.7 crack, and suddenly Global Village went from mostly unknown to high traffic gumby cliff.

There are some fantastic routes here and it has definitely earned it's attention. The wall needs some maintenance to trails for sure.


Getting There 

At the large boulder and trail split, hike right. Follow this for a bit, through a drainage and up a hill to another split. Left goes directly up to the Eureka/Father and Son/Vision area and the right goes to the harder sport routes and the right end of the clif where Casual Viewing is located.

A pretty bad picture of the route, but you get the general idea.

Casual Viewing 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b  KY : Red River Gorge : Global Village
Climb the lieback dihedral crack. I don't remember a specific crux. One of the best 5.7 climbs I've ever done, but I love layback cracks....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
