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...

Cosmic Trigger 5.12a/b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6a  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Inner Sanctum
With so many RRG routes over-hyped & over-star-ed in the guidebook, its rare to find a route that is better than expected, but this diamond in the rough delivers the goods. Surely one of the best 12a's at the Red, this route climbs a beautiful swath of sculpted, slightly overhanging orange sandstone, with interesting, continuous movement and a technical crux just below the top.Stick clip the first bolt and make insecure moves between large slopers. More slopers lead out right to a tough move a...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
