This is another shady NW facing wall that is often less crowded than other walls. Most of the lines on this wall are very featured faces containing lots of iron bands.

Getting There 

Either head to the What About Bob Wall and walk left past the wall or head to the back of the Sore Heel parking lot and make a left instead of a right. Follow this trail uphill through muddy patches to your first turn off to the right. Turn right and head towards the wall. The trail here meets the wall by Delayed Gratification.

Mary getting into the steep iron oxide rails that make this route so much fun.

Hatfield 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Rival Wall
This route has cleaned up very nicely leaving some beautiful pockets and edges up a slightly overhanging technical face. Definitely an area classic.Begin up the easy slab for a few bolts. Start up the steepening face. Make moves between thin edges, pockets, and an occasional jug. Fight the pump the entire way to the anchors. This climb has a lot less shake outs than its neighbor so keep moving....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
