This wall faces NW and sees very little sunlight. Most of the routes are less than vertical in nature and often run. This also has one of the shortest approaches and because of the less than vertical nature is often less crowded. This wall has the typical bullet hard sandstone found around Pendergrass and the RRG.

Getting There 

From the Sore Heel parking lot, walk towards the back of the light and turn right. Cross over two wooden bridges and make the first left heading uphill. Follow this for a short distance to reach the base of the wall. The trail meets at the trad lines Gluteus and Maximus.

Great technical line with only a few moves at the grade.Start near a tree at a dip in the trail. Make a long move to get established on the iron horizontals. Clip the first bolt and make the easy moves to the last bolt before the roof. Make a difficult traverse to get established in the groove directly below the roof (crux). Make a tricky reach to pull the roof and enjoy the easy slab to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Kentucky
