Description 

Not quite as sweet as the Sanctuary but worth a visit for sure... Good 5.10 warm ups for the harder routes at the Sanctuary...

The only 5 star route here is Karmic Retribution 5.10c but there are a few more fun lines such as Bad Company 5.10b, Netizen Hacktivist 5.9+, Cosmic Trigger 5.12a, Among others...

There may be a few dry routes on a rainy day but not enough to make this a rain day destination...

Getting There 

A few hundred feet right of the Sanctuary... follow signs to The Sanctuary then continue right along the cliff past First Fall 5.9 a sweet crack... Just follow the trail for a minute or two past that route an you shall arrive...

Psyberpunk 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Inner Sanctum
This route starts and ends with great jugs. Start up the deep buckets for hands and feet to the first thin crimpy section. Get a couple more good holds for the last long crimpy section. Pull through several sections of small and sustained holds (crux). Be sure to look around, because several options exist to exit the crux. Get up to the plated holds and move to the finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
