Bush League 5.12b/c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Brightside
Bouldery crux down low followed by stellar jug hauling and a redpoint crux high on the wildly overhanging wall. Best not to enter the big hueco up high but rather hand-heel traverse along the edge, as the rock inside is sandy choss. The route is pretty much in the bag at that point anyway....[more]   Browse More Classics in KY

Crag is directly across the holler from the Dark Side. Best to access by walking left from Solar Collector (especially tempting on crowded fall days), although there is also a rough trail that leads up an old road just behind the "Dark Side" sign on the main trail along the valley floor, before crossing the creek. It is also possible to skirt the wall from the Dark Side and walk around the back of the holler, passing beneath Barn Dance (10+/11-) and Praestantissimum (11+/12-) along the way. The trail is somewhat rough but not too bad.
