Description 

A small crag with only a handful of routes, nevertheless a great destination crag, or a great warm-up crag. Gets morning sun and has a few routes which are protected in the rain.

Getting There 

Park in the same area as for the Solar Collector / Gold Coast. The Far Side is uphill from the parking lot. Follow a winding dirt road up the hill from the parking lot to a cliff, then follow this right until you reach a notch in the cliff band. Dirty Sanchez follows the striking arete on the left wall.

Papa Loves Jugs 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  KY : Red River Gorge : ... : Far Side
Given 5 stars in the 3rd edition of the Red River Gorge guidebook, this route lured us with promises of steep rock and great movement, but only proved to be a 2 star, one-move-wonder with some easy huecos at the top.Climb up into a scoop, and move left onto the face using small edges to reach better holds and huecos which trend towards the arete.Watch out for the copious amount of poison ivy at the base of this climb!...[more]   Browse More Classics in KY
