Description 

Tricky, but typically Red River Gorge, start leads to unique climbing.

This route seems to be poorly protected (it flares inwardly), but with hexes it actually is very safe. The upper part is easily protected with smaller gear.

It's hard to set up a TR from the anchors. Better to belay up, or sling the anchors long and leave directionals.

Location 

Rappel from cold shuts.

Protection 

Best protected with larger hexes. A standard RRG rack supplemented with these will suffice.

Cold shuts.
