Description 

This wall faces NW and sees very little sunlight. Most of the routes are less than vertical in nature and often run. This also has one of the shortest approaches and because of the less than vertical nature is often less crowded. This wall has the typical bullet hard sandstone found around Pendergrass and the RRG.

Getting There 

From the Sore Heel parking lot, walk towards the back of the light and turn right. Cross over two wooden bridges and make the first left heading uphill. Follow this for a short distance to reach the base of the wall. The trail meets at the trad lines Gluteus and Maximus.

Climbing Season

For the Pendergrass-Murray Recreational Preserve (PMRP) area.

This is a good moderate dihedral that eats up gear and is a great option if you are in the area. The route dries quickly compared to other lines at the wall. The orange lichen look sort of like lava flowing out of the rock.Start off making some easy step ups to get established in the dihedral. Get to a wide section and make some difficult steps (crux). Continue up using the face or dihedral to climb to the anchors, which are shared with No Sleep......[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
