Blue Runner 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a PG13 KY : Red River Gorge : Fortress Wall
This route has a little bit of everything...fingers, off-width, over-hang, face climbing...Climb through an over-hanging section to a ledge. Climb the thin fingers dihedral until it widens to OW. Work your way up this to a ledge with anchors on a large boulder.I gave this a "PG" rating because of the start and the boulder below it....[more] Browse More Classics in KY
