Diamond In The Rough at the Red River Gorge. Phot...


An excellent sport route up thin, crimpy holds.


Located in Emerald City. Diamond in the Rough is the second bolted route right of the large hueco, just left of Oz.


7 bolts in 80' to a 2 bolt anchor.

The holds are there you just can't see them from the bottom. Sustained route without a defined crux. Still one of the best 10's i have ever been on.
