Pink Feat Boulder Problem

V1, Boulder, 10 ft (3 m),  Avg: 2 from 2 votes
FA: Larry Day, 1980's
Kentucky > Red River Gorge > Northern Gorge > Military Wall
Access Issue: New route development is prohibited in the Daniel Boone National Forest. Details

Description

Just right of the first bolts on Pink Feat and perhaps 8' off of the ground you will note a sloping narrow ledge with a distinctly low spot in it. Line up below the lowest point on the ledge and hop to it, then push up into a mantle with no real footholds. When standing on the ledge the boulder problem is complete. This boulder problem predated the bolted line which has usurped, or perhaps recycled the name.

Location

From the approach trail stay right for a very long time, heading towards the far north end of the main wall. When practically to the end, just before reaching G.I. you will encounter a flat vertical face that lacks the closely spaced pockets and features that characterize most of Military Wall. There are two lines on this, Pink Feat (mixed) on the left and Super Slab (sport) on the right.

Protection

A spotter and a pad if you feel it is needed. The ground here has always been soft and the fall is not long.
