Description 

Well shaded, hence the name.

Been called "shitty grove", though the routes are pretty good.

Long, overhung wall that is sheltered from the sun and rain. Routes from 5.10 to 5.13, most in the 5.11+ to 5.12 range.


Getting There 

From the Sore Heel Hollow parking head up the closed road then on the trail to the right that goes up to another road. Follow this for several minutes till you see the sign signaling to turn off to the left to Shady Grove.

Look about 2/3 up the route and you'll see the second giant no hands rest.

Taste the Rainbow 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Shady Grove
This is a long route with no real crux, maybe the hardest single moves are right off ground before the second bolt. Great rests and classic RRG jug hauling. Punch it to the anchors. Fun and kind of adventurous. Rope drag can be a problem. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
