Description 

North facing like most of the other walls in this area. This area stays slightly damp since it doesn't see much sun, but contains quite a few excellent lines. Most of the routes here are solid sandstone with many iron oxide rails. Not much traffic, so a good option on a busy weekend.

Getting There 

From the Sore Heel parking lot, walk to the back of the lot towards the creek. Instead of walking right, where there is the "What About Bob" sign, go left on an unmarked trail. Cross the creek and head uphill on the wide road looking trail. Stay on this until after you pass the sign for Rival Wall and the next immediate sign is the Courtesy Wall. Turn right and head uphill and you will be at the base of the beautiful arete Welcomed Guest.

This fun climb differs from your typical RRG pumpfest at the bottom at least offering technical arete like climbing.Begin by climbing up onto an easy boulder and traverse leftwards to gain a small arete. Boulder up the arete utilizing pinches and a few good crimps to obtain the giant Hueco above and a no hands rest. Exit the Hueco on and continue upwards into the dihedral while keeping the pump at bay....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
