Feels easier than 5.9, easy clipping stances, nice jugs. Very good climb.


Located at the opposite end as the entrance to Bruise Brothers wall. It is where Rat Stew and the other sport climbs are.


nine bolts.

A lot of giant loose plates, pull down not out it would be bad news for your belayer to rip one of them down. Oct 30, 2010

Careful getting to the first bolt if you dont stick clip. I watched a number of people stuggle in fear to get to what looks like an easy first bolt. May 3, 2011

Very broken climbing with many loose blocks and dirty ledges. Fun movement, but the rock quality took away from it. I will avoid in the future. May 14, 2012

Loved the climb (my second ever 5.9 lead). Yes, some plates were loose, but they were Xed with chalk, and there were always plenty of other good holds. Fantastic view from the top if you get up there while the sun is setting. Aug 29, 2012
Not understanding the loose rock issues...? There are a few blocks marked with an X, but it is a pretty awesome beginner route. The only 5.9 part of it might be the crack at the start, but that section would probably be a 5.6 with trad ratings in the red. Mar 28, 2014

super fun movement, however as stated by the entire population of the known world, there are a lot of loose holds on this. Definitely a great route to teach people what an "x" stands for. Nov 2, 2015

Oh my gosh, this seriously might be my favorite 5.9 at the Red! Lovely movements the entire way. The loose blocks previous commentors are mentioning were not an issue and I easily found great alternative holds. Enjoyable climbing and it's a longer route too! Jul 15, 2016

If you are climbing this with the sun on your back, you'll be pissed how much taller it is than its neighbors. Jun 22, 2018

There are bees, hornets I believe in the notch of the flake at the anchors. I saw five fly in there while climbing. Lots of folks still seemed to be able to complete the climb without incident. Allergic folks may want to be aware. Oct 8, 2018

It was a foggy, misty, rainy, and humid day in the Red River Gorge. So we did what everyone generally does and headed to the Bruise Brothers Wall in Muir Valley. First person video: youtu.be/dLN3h-MX79Q Jan 14, 2019
