Shot of overlord


technical, balancey, slabby route. very atypical of the red river gorge. lots of small crimps up the face, with the crux coming near the top.


continue along the trail past "lord of the flies", and this is the first bolted climb as you round the corner.


6 bolts and anchors

This route was a lot of fun for me. Not typical RRG, but very reminiscent of the New River Gorge. Thought it was a great line.

Loved the moves on here. Really fun slab climbing. Felt easier than 10b to me. I tried comparing it to Lonesome Dove in Rumney NH which is a 10a. I especially enjoyed this route because it gets a bunch of sun. It was a pretty cold day when I did it, and I was grateful to not have numb fingers on this one.

Cleaning is tricky on this route, bring long enough slings or you will clean hanging under the ceiling, which was annoying.
