A frictiony slab that climbs the left hand of the slab. Consistent and fun.


2 draws for the chains and several draws for the climb.


Great climb with some pleasantly challenging moments for newcomers. Drive past the guard station and you'll pass it on the left. If you pass Pine Bluff campground you've gone too far. May 28, 2015

First bolt is a little high and each bolt is at least 10+ feet apart. Could have some safe, but long falls. Aug 4, 2013

Fun traverse across edge 3/4 up the climb. The first bolt is up like 15 feet, kinda sketchy, but easy to get to. Definitely worth hitting up once. :) Aug 21, 2012

One of my favorite climbs in the entire canyon! Plus I'm from Kentucky and really dig the name ;) Jul 6, 2011
