Gold Rush 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : The Gallery
Begin on a slabby start below the low roof. Make a big move out of the roof to gain the face. Once established on the face get a shake and prepare for 60ft of spectacular climbing. The moves become slightly more difficult up to a crux reaching the chicken head. Figuring out how to rest on the chicken head was crucial because it's the last good rest before the chains. The climbing above the chicken head is sustained and culminates with a dynamic move at the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY

Another way to get to the Gallery ...
especially useful for those with vehicles which lack High Clearance ...
is to
Park at the bottom on the left side (just past the turn-off right going up steep-ish hill to the Sore Heel parking) in the Flat Holler parking (GPS latitude longitude approx N37.6466 W83.7200). Then walk about 500 feet back East on the road to the new trailhead for Sore Heels, turn Left and hike North uphill about 0.25 mile to the Sore Heel parking. Then perhaps turn sharp Left (SouthWest) up the dirt road to the road junction (N37.6509 W83.7175) with Gallery sign. Turn sharp Right and go North about 650 ft to the left side of the Gallery crag (N37.6528 W83.7176).

. . The turnoff from route 498 onto the gravel road for Flat Holler and Sore Heel psrking is at GPS latitude longitude approx (N37.6363 W83.7160).
