Primarily a steep sport climbing crag there are also a few really fun Trad lines here as well... The best of which would have to be first fall 5.9 just a nice crack climb on solid rock or you could hit the 5 star Buddha Slept 5.12a if you crank like that... The classic sport routes here are to name a few,Jesus Wept 5.12d, Triple Sec 5.13a and Immaculate Deception 5.12a(this last one isn't as brutally steep as the others...
Hike the gravel road down to the river... Follow the stream down to a crossing and follow signs to the crag... 10-15 min walk...

Beautiful blank yellow and black face with small pockets and a few visible crimps. Climb through three distinct cruxes, the first being powerful and bouldery on pockets. A nice no hands rest follows the first crux. Tricky and pumpy crux up top. Have fun clipping the anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in KY
