An easy start takes you to a no-hands stance beneath the orange headwall. Launch up the wall into sustained overhanging moves and a techy vertical crux. Somewhat spicy as the crux moves occur well above the bolt, but the fall is clean with a good belay. Just don't push hard away from the wall with a bunch of slack out, as the tree lurks below. ...[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.
