|Such a cool experience. A cool hike and an awesome climb. Sharp, mean and nasty, just like my ex-wife.|

See my comment on Indian Creek, but tried to find Wide Pride as well and also completely epic'ed. With the renovation on 9b, 30 minutes is no longer valid for approach time... make it at least 45 minutes-1 hour now.
That said, can anyone who has actually made it to this crag confirm that you... follow the same approach as I listed for Indian Creek (1st river cross), but continue down to the "T" intersection w/ the river (second river cross... you will see tributary on left, which I am guessing is Amos Creek). Cross over the river and stay on the very over grown "logging road" (yes I would consider this a logging road) until you cross the river for a 3rd time, after which it turned into a much less obvious "hiking/horse trail." Just stay on the trail until you cross it 2 more times and then take the first obvious drainage ditch/gully on the left up a hill?
Partner and I got as far as the drainage ditch, but didn’t go any further because we were pretty sure that at this point we were lost, didn’t have overnight gear (lol) and were going to get eaten by flying snakes or whatever else is in the KY backcountry.
Any local insight would be greatly appreciated...
