Description

South facing, tall and variable rock quality characterize this wall. There is a nice snapshot of RRG climbing here, from 5.10-11 vertical slab sport to short moderate trad, to multi-pitch trad. Not a lot of any one type of climbing, but a good selection of each.

Getting There

From Slade, drive south on KY11, passing by Miguel's, for 4.8 miles to a grassy meadow area and pulloff parking area on the right (37.7508, -83.66375). From the parking, cross KY11 to find a trail leading uphill. Follow the trail up to a split at a large boulder. Hike left and up the hill for Emerald City and right along a bench to the bouldering area and Global Village.

For all of you who like these sub-vertical, edgy face routes, be sure to check out Rodeo Wall if you're ever in Jackson, WY. Very similar climbs. Mar 17, 2008
