Real Deep End Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The "5.11s Wall" at Real Deep End Yellow...
Secluded wall with a fair amount of lichen and choss still on the routes. All great climbing and will clean up real nice over time.
Take the low trail directly to Cloud 9 along Bowman Fork, but branch left after crossing the creek up a steep and often muddy old oil road. Follow this road to the end to arrive at routes 8-10. Detailed: From the Miller Fork main parking area, cross the creek on the foot bridge to the right. Immediately change to the left of the road to take a trail that leads to the Bowman Fork Road. Take a left toward the Serenity Point trailhead, then stay on the road as it veers left, crosses a creek, then veers right. At this point cross the creek again heading west by northwest onto an old logging road; follow this past the trailhead for The Infirmary. The road breaks down while following a creek; approximately 650 feet past the Infirmary trailhead is an old oil company road that goes up a steep hill. As you follow the road up, you will notice the main project wall of the Real Deep End on your left with a striking offwidth crack in a left facing dihedral.
The road meets the wall (37.64069, -83.68550) near a swampy area and set of pumpy 5.11s that begins on an arete at left (Valsalva Maneuver).

With sustained technical pulling on flat edges on a slightly overhanging wall, this line has a distinctly different feel for the RRG. Clamber up onto the initial shelf aiming for good holds up an angling flake. Take the flake up and left leading to great flat edge and edge up the face. Hang on until the final perfectly positioned small diving board to clip the anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in KY
