Kentucky Pinstripe 5.10a at Lady Slipper- Global V...

Description 

This is a tricky route down low. Boulder up and establish yourself on the face. Then delicately balance your way to the arete. Relax to the ledge. Rest, take in the view and then launch up the upper face.

The upper face has the best position of any route of this grade in the RRG.


Location 

From Father and Son this is the sport route around the corner to the right. Rappel from rings anchors.

Protection 

Bolts, bolted anchors.

Watch your step at the base of this and other routes to the left. Copperheads are occasionally seen moving about and/or basking in the sun.

I've seen people stem past the bottom crux using the tree at the base. The climb eases considerably after the 1 to 2 move early crux.
