The Crossroads generally faces south, but the wall gets plenty of shade from big trees in summer. This is primarily a sport crag but there is a handful of easy traditional climbs as well. The rock quality is average for the area and the routes all seem to be of at least average quality if not good quality.

Getting There 

Follow direction to Solar Collector, but keep your eyes peeled for the sign to the Crossroads on the approach. Take the old oil road to the right and follow it until you see steps up toward the cliffline. You should come out near the left-most end of the wall.

Swallow the Hollow 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : The Crossroads
Walk downhill from June Bug to locate this striking line which climbs easier than it appears. Begin off the boulder on the left and climb up to a stance beneath the meat of the line. Take on the steep face making use of Scream-face holds to reach the obvious duck-bill feature. Shake out then make more big moves culminating in a desperate finale for the chains. No gigantic cheater slings on the anchors! Classic and makes a trip to the Crossroads well worth while...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
