Good Times (5.8+). Red River Gorge, KY.
A great route for sure, but I never understood why Hackworth made such a big deal about it. There are better climbs around, but then again, it is long, clean, well protected... and well, then again, maybe it is a classic at the grade.
Climb a set of cracks to a ledge and shove yourself into a brief squeeze before riding the final crack to some anchors.
From the main approach to Sky Bridge head left past some boulders and rubble around a corner with a thin sport climb ("Soul Ram") and onto a set of cracks with a mossy section of rock near the ground between them. The left-leaning one on the right is Good Times. There is an odd-looking inset flake below a small roof that helps identify the route from the ground. The thin crack and flake system to the left with a few bolts is "The Rifleman."
A standard trad rack to fist-sized, with a few longer slings.
Kris chimneying up to notorious crux.
