Directions to The Crossroads

RRGCC
This wall is in property owned by RRGCC. Be respectful.
From the Junior Williamson Rest Area, drive south (toward Miguel's) on KY 11. You will pass Roadside and Torrent on the way. Turn right on Fixer Rd and make your first left. Take that road for 3.5 miles (making sure not to turn left where the road seems to want to take you) until you see a black oil tank on your left with a face painted on it. Make a right at the oil tank and then take the second right. Drive down a hill and park just to the right of a steep road that branches left. The main parking area is located here near the kiosk for the Pendergrass-Murray Recreational Preserve. From the parking area, walk a few feet past the kiosk to locate the trail marker. Follow the trail down and across a small bridge then along a dirt road for a a short distance. Take the first right on an old oil/logging road. Follow this for around 75 yards then continue left on the road at the fork. Take this to an old oil rig. Behind this the road forks again, take the left fork and follow it around until you can see the cliff. To reach the first routes, look for a trail branching off and uphill on the left. For A1A and the routes right of it remain on the road a bit longer, passing another old oil pump, then head uphill to the cliff.

This crag has seen some devolpement over the years, but nothing published. There are five bolted lines there, probably from the late 90's, and then some new stuff going up. If you have any info on the older routes, I would love to give them proper names / FA's.

we looked at this area last spring. i'm about 95% sure the old climbs were put up by " flyin' " brian mcray back in the late nineties. he was active in the southern region back then. the open cold shuts are a strong clue. does anybody know how to reach brian to find out?

Yep, I have heard that Brian is probably the one who put up the routes as well, but no one seemed to know for sure. The rest of the area has seen some work, a couple trimmed rhodos, an old bolt sleeve near the top, etc. But, nothing permanent or published. It is shaping up to be a pretty cool little crag, just needs some more trail work and a few more routes!

Brian was bolting in that whole drainage at the same time/slightly after the Hominy Hole was being developed. He used those open cold-shuts a lot (see crime time, routes to the right of rocket dog, etc.) so most likely they are his.

Awesome crag. Old school feeling. Nice backdrop of rhodos.

Wes said on April 14th, 2009
Since it was pointed out that the other names were kinda boring, I renamed the old routes. If Brian/etc knows the original names, will be glad to change them back.

There is now a trail that follows the cliff line from Legalize It to Wrong Turn. It just naturally happened as more lines are being put in. You still have to drop down to the small "creek" to get to the last 2 routes.

This has turned out to be one hell of a crag with a great variety of climbing. One of each of the best 5.8, 5.11d, 5.10c, and 5.12a lines in the area.

and today there were over 20 people up there...dogs, tents, hammocks, infants, playpens and noobs learning to clean anchors for the very first time 65 feet up...I kid you not.

For routes 1-10 take the First set of steps on your left. For 11-16 pass the steps and take the left at the small "bridge". For 17-24 continue further on main trail and branch left where you see the wave wall, and for routes 25 to end of crag, go right and down at the fork. Yesterday, almost everyone heading towards Boilerplate took the first set of steps and did a lot of unnecessary walking. Much easier with the directions above.

Has anyone ever led the finger seam that shares anchors with "Stefanie Bauer Route?" It is not listed here, nor in the most recent guidebook. My partner and I both led it on 3 pieces of gear the other day, and we are wondering if it could be a FA. We have photos/video to help identify the route and confirm our ascents. -Jack

I've led that before. Kind of fun, felt somewhere between 8+ and 9+ to me. I like it better than Stefanie Bauer route, although that's not saying a whole lot.

Dang, no FA for us then. Thanks though. It's good to know that another climber would rate it about the same. I hate small gear, but I would agree it is way better than Stefanie Bauer Route.

I think Crompy soloed that one once on an awkward threesome day, and was then too sketched to downclimb it. It was pretty fun looking at him up there all stranded, throwin rocks at him and shit.

It is rare when it's not awkward and a threesome goes as smoothly as it does in the fantasy.
