Undertow Wall Rock Climbing
Resting up after the crux.
This classic RRG wall characterizes many of the best aspects of Red sport climbing. Long, steep and pumpy this featured wall is littered with crimps, pockets, pinches, and jugs. While the climbs may not follow stand out features they are all fun Red "jug hauls".
Right of the Madness Cave is this shorter and less steep (but still steep!) sector. Shady most of the day with evening sun in the fall.
Take the right fork in the approach trail from the parking area to the Motherlode. The first wall you reach will be the Undertow below the route "Resurrection".

Launch into this Undertow classic by bouldering up through several crimpy moves that trend right. Gain a jug and a shake before charging up generally good pockets and the occasional long reach. As you endeavor through the steepness, resist the temptation to scream "TAKE" at your loving belayer. He/She is only there to help. Clipping the anchors provides a challenge as the finishing hold is nothing to write home about....[more] Browse More Classics in Kentucky
