Rocket Man 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Main Wall
In my opinion this is the most striking line at Muscle Beach. You can't miss this splitter fist crack and offwidth.It starts out as a hand crack, quickly widens and never stops. By the time you get to the ledge you will need a skin (or tape) transplant and it may be easier just to bail and skip the upper "pitch." It looks hard for the grade anyway!...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
