As you approach the cliff you come to the Solar Collector first. An easth facing wall that gets tallerr as you move to the right. The routes start at 5.10+ and progress to 5.12 as the wall grows and the lines get longer. The tops of these route will get wet in the rain as the routes go right to the top of the wall.
Take the Fixer Rd turn off to the right near a sign for Lee County. Make your first left and follow th epaved road which eventually turns to dirt/gravel. About a mile after the road turns to dirt look for a big gas tank on the left that has been painted to look like some sort of creature, turn right here and follow the road to the end at a RRGCC kiosk.

Blue Eyed Honkey Jesus 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ E5 6b KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Solar Collector/Gold Coast
Begin with a few bouldery moves and climb up into the large hueco after clipping the 2nd bolt. Shake out and exit the hueco on the right and climb straight up the face using some smaller holds and pockets. Keep going to gain a good shake before trending up and left to reach an obvious large hold for another shake. The top gets a bit steeper, but the holds improve dramatically to the finish. Nice route with fairly sustained climbing after the hueco. ...[more] Browse More Classics in KY
