Kentucky Pinstripe 5.10a at Lady Slipper- Global V...


This is a tricky route down low. Boulder up and establish yourself on the face. Then delicately balance your way to the arete. Relax to the ledge. Rest, take in the view and then launch up the upper face.

The upper face has the best position of any route of this grade in the RRG.


From Father and Son this is the sport route around the corner to the right. Rappel from rings anchors.


Bolts, bolted anchors.

Watch your step at the base of this and other routes to the left. Copperheads are occasionally seen moving about and/or basking in the sun.

1 move wonder. Top is 5.7. Great climb

I've seen people stem past the bottom crux using the tree at the base. The climb eases considerably after the 1 to 2 move early crux.

Watch out for Copperheads at the base. I saw 4 there today.

Tricky crux sequence down low with slopey holds gives way to easier slab climbing. The climbing isn't superb but the view definitely makes it worth it! There are now glue ins for the first two bolts as well.

The crux is definitely easier for those who are taller, but I am 5'2" and still made it work. The climbing isn't fantastic, but the view is worth it.
