The route is not noteworthy in itself. It is the only viable route to the summit though. From the west end of the rock climb up to a vegetated ledge. Traverse the ledge to the left edge and scramble up an exposed, short low angle arete. Traverse the next ledge left until you can see a scrap of steel cable dangling from the sky. Find your way along the cable to the summit protecting where you can. DON'T TRUST YOUR LIFE TO THE CABLE!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Kentucky
