Description 

Nice crag with some moderate climbs and relatively soft grades. Most climbs stay dry in the rain.

Getting There 

Follow signs to the Solarium, when you make the hard right (and the Solarium trail takes a foot path up and left) continue on vehicle trail until you see signs.

Lip Service 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Kentucky : Red River Gorge : ... : Great Arch, The
An excellent and varied climb. Pull your way through a few roofs with fun movement including a heel hook and toe cam. Experience nothing but jugs until you hit the crux about half way up. Continue with technical movement on basketball slopers until the chains. True to the grade, this route won't disappoint....[more]   Browse More Classics in Kentucky
