Perfect hand crack. Might as well be a jug haul.
Like its namesake in Utah, Indian Creek contains an abundance of quality crack lines. But the highlight of this crag are the massive offwidth roofs up to 20 feet-literly feet. But oddly enough the name meens more to this crag than any other in the Red, and its the line Crack Attack, a Classic that looks like it should be in Utah. The wall has a number of buttresses which create different aspects and rock characteristics that directly affect route quality.
Drive down Forest Service Road 9B 2.9 miles to a concrete dam/bridge. Continue 0.6 miles where the road makes a curve to the left with wood pylons on the outside of the turn. Park in the campsite ahead or off the side of the road. Walk back to the pylons and locate a small trail that you'll follow strait back towards a campsight until you find an old logging road that cuts uphill left. Hike the old road for 150 feet and head uphill right to a ridge and turn right uphill on th ridge until you see a small pinnacle and your there.

Scramble up to the ledge where this beautiful splitter crack begins. Push past the low roof with tight hands and prepare for one of the best handcracks in the red. Jam for the next 60 feet in the parallel sided crack until you hit the fist and offwidth section but its short lived. Clip the anchors and remind your self that your in the Red. ...[more] Browse More Classics in KY
