about to head into the crux section


Climb the left facing corner to the roof. Traverse left under the roof to a stance. Head straight up into a left facing corner to the top. Use some long slings on the traverse to avoid drag. The upper portion is not hard, but incredibly fun! Do this route, it's awesome!


If you're walking in from Fayette Station Rd parking, you'll pass Orchard Wall and the classic splitter Springboard to get there. If you rap in near Star Trek or take the Fern Creek ladders in, follow the cliff and head downstream. It's one of the most obvious lines you will see.


Heavier on the hands to thin hands pieces. A standard rack otherwise will work fine. Bolted anchor at top.

Really fun route! The crux comes about 30 feet up as the corner arches left and the feet get very thin for a few moves. Great gear the whole way though.
