Red River Gorge guide recommends placing a piece in the crack between 1st and 2nd bolt; an optional piece BEFORE the 1st bolt makes more sense though. Crimpy crux before anchor.


Starts 15' right of Mancala.


Four bolts; chain anchors.

Nice sit down rest about halfway up, gives you a good opportunity to get rested up for the crux climbing above.

Cool route with easy starting moves to a sit down rest, which helps pull through with a bouldery-crimpy crux right before anchors.

Disregard the description, this one is fully bolted and safe.
