Enjoying a rest on King Me (5.11b). Red River Gorg...

King Me 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  KY : Red River Gorge : Eastern Sky Bridge Ridge
Quintessential Red River Gorge sport climbing! Pumpy, sustained, pockets, sidepulls, this route has it all! From ground, leap to gain the overhanging start using pockets (jugs?) and generous edges. Moving up, you'll begin to feel the pump set in, but keep yourself together for thin technical moves to undercling (crux) and clip. Finish on slab to anchors. (Cherish and savor every rest. Plenty of hardmen, not used to the Red's steepness and endurance demands, have humbly succumbed.) ...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY

The parking area is north of the very sharp hairpin for the the sky bridge by about 0.7 miles on 715. If you're heading north the first parking area is for funk rock, the second is for sky bridge.

Parking lot is at 37.8145855,-83.5819858
If coming from the direction of Nada Tunnel, it is about 0.6-0.7 miles past the one-lane concrete bridge. There is another turnout about .1 miles up the hill that is Funk Rock.

Trail head is about 300 downhill and around the bend from the parking area at 37.8149404,-83.5806639
(Not super obvious where trail hits the road, but there is a forest service sign post about 15-20 feet off the road on the trail)

5 min hike up hill. Beautiful sunny climbing -- great winter crag, but expect full sun in summer!
