A frictiony slab that climbs the left hand of the slab. Consistent and fun.


2 draws for the chains and several draws for the climb.

One of my favorite climbs in the entire canyon! Plus I'm from Kentucky and really dig the name ;)

Fun traverse across edge 3/4 up the climb. The first bolt is up like 15 feet, kinda sketchy, but easy to get to. Definitely worth hitting up once. :)

First bolt is a little high and each bolt is at least 10+ feet apart. Could have some safe, but long falls.

Great climb with some pleasantly challenging moments for newcomers. Drive past the guard station and you'll pass it on the left. If you pass Pine Bluff campground you've gone too far.
