"The slabby face right of the arching crack. Follow big holds to grassy ledge, then dance up the thinning but well-protected slab above." (Ray Ellington, Red River Gorge Rock Climbs Exp. 3rd Ed)

Crux is at middle of above slab.

I liked this climb a lot for some reason. it was extremely dirty though. upper slab section was very enjoyable. climb up the fairly easy start to a big ledge. then go up right to get up to a good ledge. traverse over to the left where the slab is much easier to climb compared to the middle or right of the bolts. climb all the way up to a huge jug and finish.

Only the ledge is dirty now. Had to wipe off my shoes on my sleeves when I stepped up from the ledge. Had a lot of fun on this route!

Some fun balancey moves in the middle of the slab.
