Climber on KSB in the Red River Gorge


Work fun iron edge pulling past long moves on a steep face to a good rest. Move up and left, then traverse right fighting the pump to eventually reach to the large pockets that lead to the finish of the route.


To the right of the where the trail meets the cliff.


6 bolts, anchors.

This climb is awesome with very diverse moves along the way. It's a great warmup for amarillo sunset just around the corner.

Beautiful iron holds, and one of the best 10d's I've done anywhere. Must do at the grade.

Beautiful climb! A bit height dependant, if you're on the taller side like I am it might feel softer than 10d.
