A tricky start to more positive holds with one or two nice layback-style holds. A more technical move or two between a couple of the upper bolts, followed by more jugs to the anchors.


Look for a tall chimney upcanyon just a bit from the camping area past the bridge. On the wall to the left of the chimney this is the third route from the right.


8 bolts and anchors.

This route is sweet! Awesome holds and one of the better 10's in the canyon! Great movement and bomber holds...a must do! This route is directly left of Crime Scene and has 8 bolts and clips at the top.

Didn't feel much harder than Hematoma. But it is more fun and has a better flow. I think this might even be a better warm-up than Hematoma.

Amazing! You'll swear you're in the Red River Gorge if you climb this route. Better holds than you could ever ask for, and cool moves the whole way through.
